IMO changing the geometry for the sole reason of being able to put your other foot flat on the ground is a band aid for poor riding skills.

Remember when those racers suddenly flip over like a raging horse ? well it's what your exposed to since shit will probably happen when you brake like mad (you usually brake like mad when your life is in danger already), the front suspension will bottom, the rear will stretch(and they do a lot), then the rake will become negative, the handlebars will go to full lock to one side, this will induce a unrecoverable spin since your rear tire barely contact the ground, the bike will flip over and the hell happens then...
And I have the chance to warn you before.
Best is to maintain the original suspension geometry intact.
Rule : lower the bike=turn a fine tuned chassis in a backyard engineered garbage
Oh and yes, it will bring you closer to the ground
