I have a 30" inseam and own a f800gs, and I find it easier to put both feet down on a r1200gs water cooled bike. Plus, I wouldn't mind sizing up.

I like the idea of a storage bag as well that mounts to engine guards. Great idea. Although, I won't store any fuel in the container.

Seat option

Well, I'm going to get into contact with seat concepts, this week sometime. If they use a much firmer foam, it may be the ticket, for a comfortable ride. Thanks so much for the information.

So it's comfortable? I'll look into it. I'd like to go with an adventure f800gs, but it's taller than my f800gs, unless I go with the low seat. I'll look into seat concepts.

Seat height questions

I own a 2013 f800gs, it has standard seat. I'm wondering if anyone owns a current Adv. F800GS with a low seat, (optional).

I think that's a great idea. Once, I'm ready to make the change. They won't sell it yet. The 2014 model is really a nice bike as well. No miles, brand new. but a year old.

That's the going rate, should they come down a grand. That would make sense. The incentives is $2,000. They also have a 2014 model. For $18,000.00 with the $2,000 incentive.

Wanting to buy a demo

I'm looking at this 2015 r1200gs demo. The bike list for $20,000. The manager is offering 2 or $3,000 off the price of the bike. Any opinions?
