You'll never regret buying the KLR. I think it's the best bang for the buck. (I have three different bikes). You can lower it but remember you'll need the shorter sidestand too (Dual Star). I opted for the Corbin seat (1" lower) and stayed with that. Here's where you'll have problems. When parking or turning on a slope, it's easy to fall, since one foot may not reach the ground. By the time your foot reaches you may be off balance. I have a 30" inseam and confess to tipping over just like that. It happens in slow motion and is embarrassing. The bad news is you may break a mirror or lever. The good news is the sheet metal and plastic doesn't even get scratched. (It lands on the bars and pegs.) I got in the habit of putting the sidestand down, letting the rear suspension come up, turning the bars right, holding the front brake, and swinging my leg over.
