Hi everyone. Today a layed my new to me bike down while practicing turns in an empty parking lot. While turning left, my knee got stuck between the handlebar and the tank and I went down because I couldn't get my knee out to put my foot down. Put a small dent in the tank too. So I guess my question is how to properly set up my bars so this doesn't happen again? I ride a 2006 Vulcan 900 classic. I'm 6' 7" tall. Thanks for any advice!

I have long legs/arms and had to adjust my handlebars up.
Just loosen the bars and adjust them to where they're comfortable.
Or look in to some handlebar risers.

Highly recommend an engine guard as well to protect you and the bike incase you do lay it down again. +1 on what doubleJ said. 1st thing I did to my 800b 2nd day I had it. If you do this, shoul rotate control back also along with mirrors.
