Good point, I had forgotten that risers helped out quite a bit. My install of the risers wasn't to help with buffeting, just better ergonomics for my riding position. However, it did have the...

BMW let's you test ride, so you should at least be able to try out a G650GS at Bob's.


Good luck.

F650gs

A newer F650GS sounds like it would do the trick. It has ~30 seat height and can be factory lowered. It also has an 800cc motor which is a site better than a 250.

Tiger

Triumph Tiger 1050 sounds like it would fit the bill pretty well. I think the top end on the Vee is ~125 and the Tiger is ~140.

The 650 comes with the "low" seat by default. I don't know of an aftermarket seat that's really any lower.

My wife rides a Suzuki Gladius (SFV650). It's a great bike, upright seating position, fun to ride (66 hp, 63 torque), looks good (in black) and a decent price too. BTW, she's 5' 3" and has no problem...

The magnets "could" be viewed as an attempt to obscure the scan. So your really at the mercy of the TSA agent on this one. I'd check the bag at the counter.

Thanks for all the advice.

I'm going to try a few locations and see what is the most comfortable. I do like the idea of the "upside down" camera and rotating the photos later. Good tip.

Thumb Cut the cost of the bike

Lower the price of the bike by the amount of insurance $$ you received. You walk away with the same amount of cash and someone gets a good deal. :thumbup
