Agreed, I personally wouldn't add graphics, although I know that's the look you're going for. That is one sexy looking bike with those colors.

I'm impressed you found a loose spoke. I can say for certain I've never checked the spokes on my wheels. After reading this thread I may start. :lol3

For sure it's not a new program. I've gotten it on my last several bikes over the years. I'd guess your dealer missed it.

I guess it comes down to inseam, not overall height. I'm 5'10" and with the seat in the high position front and back I'm flat footed both feet with bend in both knees.

I may be reading this wrong, but a 2015 GSA is WAY shorter than a standard F800GS. I've owned both now. I'd say my 2015 GSAW feels lower than every other GS I've owned except for my F650 GS...even...
