Congrats on your new ride. I live about 50 minutes north of Tampa. I'm short and fat too! Reaching the ground is just a bit of a stretch on my Nomad. I guess I need to check the air pressure in my shocks too. I tried lowering the preload on the shocks and quickly put it back. The bouncy, bouncy ride was not very confidence inspiring to say the least. I think the thicker heel boots would work out fine for me as I can almost flat foot if I roll forward on the seat I can almost flat foot my ride.

welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new vaquero. The vaquero is a awesome bike, you're going to love it. I've had mine for about 6 months now and its the best bike I've owned. Taking it easy and signing up for the riding coarse are great ideas. Enjoy it and be safe, I'm sure you'll get lots of miles and smiles out of it. By the way, the blue vaqueros are really nice looking.
