Both of the 2 above suggestions are what I had to do as well as a very good pair of boots with thick soles & 2" heels. With my Arthritis this worked well until I needed to ride 2 up so I have now gone with a Voyager trike kit butnow I need to lift Baby by 2". Just can't win. I have been unsuccessful in my search for longer shocks. Progressive says there is none that are longer than stock.:shock: I know that's not true so I have to look elsewhere. Maybe Skyjacker:cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil:As GWNorman mentioned, many riders found that removing some foam from the drivers saddle area can help. Some even narrow the seat some to make it easier to flat foot when stopped. I have heard that someowners have the original foam in the drivers saddle area replaced with newer foam that makes the seat lower, and more comfortable.
Shocks can be expensive, and IMHOchanging the height of the bike brings many other issues you will have to live with.
