how TALL can I go?

Been feeling like I want a new bike (adventure-touring, like a Triumph Tiger specifically), and while the DX is currently for sale, I can't find a single person who actually wants to buy it! I've dropped the price a LOT, but I'm getting NOTHING for hits.
So, maybe I should explore modifying until I'm actually happy with it.

It's a '12 DX with mid controls, and it's too low. I want more ground clearance and a taller seat height to straighten my legs out underneath me more. I've already gotten rid of the forward controls because they are not comfortable for more than an hour or two of riding, but the mids have my knees bent too much to easily transfer weight onto them. Basically, I want a 2012 Street Rod, but with more upright bars. AKA the opposite of basically every Harley.

What kind of options are there out there for longer shocks and taller seats that fit a 2012+ bike? Any suggestions?
