Buy a different type bike?

Honestly forward controls aren't the best idea anyways, puts all the weight through your backside which means your putting all the pressure on your lower bag, IE your spine.

I'm not extremely tall but find the forward controls and highway pegs nice to have the option of moving arroud a little, also I lowered my heel shifter so its just under the floorboard height so I can move my feet a little too, most configurations with florboards & heel toe shifters your left foot it "trapped" between the levers, only problem with my "fix" is I have to ride with my boots, in regular shoes I have to toe shift, the flat sole dont reach my shift peg, but Im a highway/parkway guy so its the lesser of 2 evils for me
