Well, I admit that as I get older, and wider-of-belly...it is not as easy to bend the knees etc etc.

The consequence, especially on a longer ride, is it gets tougher to react and get my foot on the brake pedal. (Even harder to get on the shift pedal).

Any options here? For a different pedal? different shift lever?

Rather than start a debate.........Lol.

Use your computer and look up something like solutions for handicap motorcyclists. Or motorcycle controls for handicap bikes,bikers, riders and so on.

There are a great many options to allow you to enjoy the sport in various ways from having the brakes set up with a dual hand control to even a fully automatic clutch.

Look that up and you can read different solutions for several hours.

After having my right knee replaced 3 times, I have the same problem. I have Kuryakyn floorboards and the brake pedal seems small and tucked in.

try lowering the brake pedal one notch.... I did. (for me) it makes it easier to put my foot on it. Don't have to lift my foot as high.
