OK, this would be a nice new thread; what's the nastiest low speed turn
you've ever ridden on your GPZ? I need to take a picture of mine but Mike
and Charles probably know this turn. It's a uphill, 180, usually covered
with sand, and (I am not kidding) there was a small dead bear on the side of
the road there. If I had my camera or my phone (wish, darn it I forgot to
take, but there's not cell coverage up there anyway) I would have loved a
shot of it. Anyway, it's the turns out of Ward, CO right before you hit
Peak to Peak Highway, up by the Mill Site Inn. And since the dirt turns on
Old Stage Road, I would never take my GPZ on, they don't count!

I sympathize. I dropped mine once when I was turning around on a hill and
hit full lock. The best I've ever been able to manage is one foot flat.
I've never considered lowering it, though, since 99% of the time I'm rolling
and it handles so nicely when under way. Have you considered having a seat
made that puts you closer to the ground? Platform boots? Nah...

What is the best way to lower the GPZ?
I got it on the road Friday April 2, & I have already managed to get in
right at 300 miles, but my 26 inseam I am vertically challenged, I need to
lower it a little.
right now I can only get 1 foot flat on the ground at a time, or both feet
tip toes, so for safety, it needs lowering so I can get both feet flat on
the ground. I am having problems turning it around on my driveway, which is
like an old country dirt road with tall center hump, plus my driveway is up
side of a mountain nearly 1/2 mile long.
what is recomendations? anyone have a used lowering link? or?
