It was on the center stand when I swung a leg over it. Pegs felt a bit higher... then I remembered I put the after market pegs that are on my current GS in the low position.
One thing I noticed is that the radiator shrouds that really stand out in the images don't do so as much in real life. Anyway, some misc images:
Lots of knee room
Luggage rack detail
Note the small bit of fixed clear plastic under the adjustable portion of the windshield. The gap between the fixed and variable portions increases as the shield is raised. I think that will result in less turbulence for the rider. Hope so, anyway.
This bike had halogen lamps
