Actually I could reach flat footed with boots on with the stock height. I am 5'5" with a 30" inseam and skinny thighs. Kind of long legs for my height. Lowering it made it much easier to handle like backing it up while siting on it and a little more sure footed coming to a stop etc. My wife is 5'7" with a 28" inseam and thick thighs. She couldn't reach flat footed with the stock height. But lowering it 2.25 brought it down so even she can sit flat footed bare foot. With the 240 on it it is about 3/4 of an inch higher but she can still reach flat footed, I think even barefoot.
$50 for the lowering links vs $250 to $500 for a seat worked for me and I think the seat is plenty comfortable. Plus it looks awesome lowered and feels better from a shot mans point of view.lol.
good to know, i also have a 28' inseam and pretty thick thighs. trying to get thicker thighs :) maybe will look into lowering kit and the LM seat as well.

thanks for all the help from everyone. options galore!
