    Just purchased a used 06 1200 Sporty Low. I am 5'3". i am definetly flat footed when seated. The bike has drag bars with 4 inch risers. After riding for about 25 miles i found my lower back was stiff and my pressure points on butt where uncomfortable. the bike does have a mustang seat but i was scooted up on it to be less stretchedwith the bars. I am thinking the stock bars might need to go back on to help with reach or will 6 inch risers help? I want to enjoy riding the bike but i'm not comfortable. I have an old 1100 virago and i have no comfort problems on that at all. SOS PLEASE! thanks
