OK - have any of you girls or guys found it necessary to purchase a pair of boots that provide an additional 3/4 to 1" leg length? 

I love my old 1991 R100GS ...... owned since new.  But as I've gotten older, I find I need a little more stability when I come to a stop on this old gal.

Any advice on boots you've found that are quality, that provide an extra inch or so, and keep you in the saddle of a favorite bike?

Any cobbler worth his salt should be able to remove your soles, add a layer of rubber, and then reattach your soles to give you the height you need, though it may have an unfavorable effect if the boots are waterproof. It works best if your boots have Goodyear welts (stitched-on soles, not molded soles).
