i just feel more comfortable when at least both my toes touch for when i'm stopping. the 1 time i dropped my bike was when i was stopped and lost my balance so that's when i decided to have it lowered a bit more than what the dealership had already lowered it

true but height is still a factor. my wife dropped hers twice because of not having good footing. Being light just makes it easier to pick up off the ground,lol.
