yeah and what with the giant random pieces of cement and on houston highways I figure the more ground clearance you can get for your oilpan the better.

I know of no other way than to replace the shock.
I know it sucks to have to buy a shock., but because the bike doesn't use any linkage for the rear shock, it's the only way to lower it.
