    So the last bike was a ninja 500 and the whole year riding that I had no issues besides it looking like a turd. I get on the buell and first thing I notice riding is I have a hard time finding the shifter. I'm hoping either this will sort itself out with getting a little more used to the bike but if not has anyone cone across shift levers with slightly longer toe pegs? I feel so far the issue is I miss it and thats with shoes on I can only imagine it getting more difficult with boots. Just curious anyone else experience the learning curve

    When I first got my firebolt I had come from a Kawasaki KLR 650 and it's a very different riding position. It took man while to get used to but I also had to get myself a set of one inch drop pegs. Don't know if it will work for you but made a night and day difference for me.

    My foot feels comfortable it to me just seems I kinda miss the peg cause its so damn short. Maybe a drop will work better tho
