I might need to invest in these. I can't even plant my feet on the ground, and the only time I can get my knees on the groove of my tank is to tippy toe on the foot peg. my short legs.

You can lower your bike also. I lowered the 600 for my wife. Not hard to do.

I'm used to propping my left foot on the ground, so that's not an issue. I just notice that it's much more comfortable when I can get my knees on the tank. Perhaps an adjustable rear set will remedy this issue?

Yes, rear sets will give you room for adjustment. They are expensive though.

Some Heat Out from cycle gear (if its will just use at work) should be good enough for one track day ... and this

ICON 2012 fall StrykerFrontGreen detail 1 600

Installed a PIAA horn on the Tiger that I ordered from Motorcycles Unlimited. I do not have a camera that can do audio justice. The PIAA is substantially louder.
