That is a very good tip. In other words, adjust the bike to you not you to the bike. I also adjusted the brake and clutch levers to the point as I'm riding my forearms and the back side of my hands are parallel to the levers. As you rest your hands on the grips with extended fingers there should be a straight line from forearms all the way down to finger tips and the fingers barely touching the controls. That way I have better control, better lever modulation and put less strain on my hands and wrist.

Great tips guys, I will make the adjustments. With my size 14's I doubt my pedal will adjust out far enough. However I will train myself to keep my foot off it!
