Oh I get what you're saying, when I got my H/T shifter and tried it out for the first time, I was disappointed for sure,, the shifter was way way to tall for my heel, I got cramps trying to shift that silly thing..and with the floorboards it was hard for me to brake proper due to my large feet...What a pain in the buttocks, so I did something about it.. I lower the shifter 2 1/2" and added an extention to the top of the brake pedal so I can use my heel to brake instead of my toe...It's all been custom fitted for me, the rider... I really enjoy my riding now..Floorboards and H&T shifters are an abomination on a Goldwing. The floorboards make it harder to get you feet on the ground and promote dropping the bike, the H&T shifters are sloppy, give a poor feel of shifting, and don't do the shift forks any good. In an effort not to offend people who like this junk, I'm holding my real opinion back.
