need help from others with big feet.
I,ve been having problems with low speed turns, I've ridden before, mind you a long time before but had no problem with low speed turning. I took the safety course recently to brush up on techniques and did well. Today after a short ride I realized what,s happening. I start off in 1st gear but when I raise my feet to the boards my heel hits the heel shifter and I inadvertantly shift into 2nd gear which makes it tremendously difficult to maneuver the turn as I either go too fast, stall, or pull in the clutch. I,m wondering if this habit will go away with experience, do you know of a longer heel shifter available, or should I cut off part of my foot. My feet are far to long to fit on board between the heel toe shifter. I,ve got riding friends with Harleys and their heel tow shifters are a good 3 inches further apart than my 1500. I would welceme ideas, and advise.
