With a 30+ inseam and the low seat I have plenty of 'leg' to heft up my GT. I even have the TouraTech 'foot' on the sidestand. But I tell ya, even if there's a slight crown (down) when parking there are times I just cannot heft the bike up. I find myself picking (and often changing) a parking spot and 'testing' the lean to ensure I can get the bike 'up'. Cranking the bars 'right' helps a tad.
Why there is so much lean on the GT makes no sense to me. I'm at the point where I'm ready to have find someone to carve a chunk of billet aluminum, about 3/4" thick, and tap the aluminum through the TT 'foot'. Nice if someone already had one for sale.
