Took my seat to an upholsterers and they re-shaped it removing about 2" off the height. You can also take a little rear preload off and lower the forks about 10-15mm down the yokes.

Do these things and you will lower it by about 2 and a half inches.

Alternatively..... Supermoto it! :)

Put 17" wheels and road rubber on and you will lower it a further 2" at least.
