Need help In Pearland....

Well long story short I picked up a new bike not too long ago, Im 5'7, and when I have my bike straight up Im on the of my feet and the other day I was backing up to get out of my friends driveway and I stepped on a little twig and near lost my balance and the bike, but recovered. It did scare me enough to make me want to lower the bike so I can have both feet flat on the ground at the same time. So im researching how to lower the bike and to lower the front doesnt seem all that difficult but the back is a diff. story. So I then figure out I have a Penske Triple adjustable back shock that has ride height adjustments. Im not exactly sure how to adjust it and I dont want to just go in and start tinkering so my question is........

Anyone in or near Pearland that wouldnt mind helping to lower my '04 GSXR 750........I have plenty of beer????

Thanks in advance

pretty simple just youtube it all you really need is a jack or swingarm stand ,ratchet,socket and an extra pair of hands to hold the bike straight. Then of course adjusting the front suspension
