little background, I'm 70 years old , 6' tall and 220 inseam 30'. I've had my 2012 KLR about a year. The problem is this spring I have dropped the bike 3 times from a stop or near stop. I know I must be squeezing the front brake . The bike is so top heavy can't hold it up. Can't lift it by myself. I have not done it major damage other than scratches. I have lowered bike 2" helped some am going to lower it another inch. I don't ride off road just commute and fun rides on pavement. What do you think. I have learned a lot from this forum in last year and value your opinions. Thank you.
