30" inseam here with a bum leg. I have yet to find a graceful way to get on it. The ride is worth the gymnastics. I only put 1 foot down when stopped so even though it has a wide girth, the stretch is no worse than on my skinny DR650 and Hypermotard. I'm interested in seeing what Rick Meyer comes up with for the seat but it would have to be pretty special to get me off the stocker. As far as the sound goes, I think BMW did that on purpose so they could sell more of their $700 Akropovic mufflers.
