Shorty pants

I had a lowering link in for about a year. I'm 5'9.764" and it helped while my riding skills improved. I have since taken it out and sold it, but it does help.
The downside for me was I would bottom out once in a while. Unwired my rear turn signals and lost a lic. plate.

They are a bit "clunky" but they work good in puddles.
