    I drilled a new hole below the original hole on the swingarm. You can go about 3/4in lower. Seems to have dropped the bike at least 2-3 in. Also lowered the forks 1 1/4in. Took it for a ride and everything seemed great. Can't wait for her to try it out.



    Did the same as this thread shows. https://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...h__1#entry6654

    Don't think I'm going to Easton this time.



    Yes



    She just got home and sat on it. Said it felt great and is ready to go riding (camping).

    Bummer about Easton, but very cool that she likes it. Good job on the modification.

    Wow, I thought I was short. I've had to modify my other bikes but not the dub.

    It is always nice to be able to have at least a foot on the ground.

    haha me too. though I have ridden BMW for many years and they sit taller than a Tdub. Once the bike is loaded for touring its better, till I would crank the shocks up. The other thing I think is me, legs not as skinny going around the seat.
