Just dropping the bike will do wonders. Balanced on the wheels there isnt much to keep a bike upright. Although admittedly I have a foot and about 70lbs on you Im sitting at lights holding the brake with one foot and talking on the phone like I was at a bus stop, and the MV is heavy for the type of bike it is. Its really all about the balance.

Another thing to do is check out some twins like the Ducs. Their mass is a little lower in the bike. 4 bangers wear their weight up high.

Also they do make actual boots that have a wedge heel. My girlfriend has a pair with a low heel and she looked at a pair with a pretty substantial heel. They looked like dress boots but had an inner shell liner, very clandestine protection.
