First 1000 mile trip on my 2014 F700 GS

Been checking out the forum for a few months now. I recently purchased a 2014 F700 GS. After riding through the break in period, I left on a 1000 mile trip through Pennsylvania, Finger Lakes, Adirondacks, and Catskills. This is my first bike so I don't have any experience with other bikes to draw upon. I really like the F700. I am 6'2" and the bike really fits me well. I haven't made any modifications yet, as I wanted to get some miles on it first and see how it felt and what might need to change to be more comfortable. After this first trip I am looking at ditching the stock seat for the BMW comfort seat or possibly a Touratech. Also looking at some adjustable clutch and brake levers.

Can't wait to get out on another trip!

Nice! I got a new wind screen right away. I also love my comfort seat. Check out my blog city-gs.com

Hey mosey.levy I came across your blog recently when googling RAM mounts for the GS. Great blog I look forward to reading more of your posts. Which wind screen did you upgrade to?

I second the BMW comfort seat. The clutch and brake lever do have a some adjustment to them. There's a small nob at the base of the pull on each side.

I did adjust the levers by turning knob. I would love to be able to get clutch lever a little closer still. Living in a city leads to a lot of shifting until I get out onto open roads.
