    It's funny how you can make such an enormous motorcycle look like a Honda Grom! :lol3

    Thank you gentlemen for all the advice. I think, after taking in all of the collective advice that my goals and objectives are more clear now. I always like a win win transaction, life is too short to nickel and dime. That being the case I agree with many of you to sell the bike as a complete package, at a fair price. Odd as it sounds, I really love this bike. The custom paint job is really what pushed me over the edge. I have a certain ownership to this inanimate object. I'd like to keep it "perfect" and see it go to someone who will "adopt" it. Crap, my wife just gave me an AhHa, she says all this angst over selling the GS is probably just me grappling with the loss of my youth. Shit, I think she hit the nail on the head. I hate to admit that I just might be slowing down (a bit).

    PS does anybody know why the moderators moved my post to this forum rather than the GS forum? I don't know how to ask them.

    Hey if you can keep riding.... who cares what it is?

    I too agree that the boxer GS is pretty close to the perfect bike but hey, if I could only ride a cruiser I will still ride too.

    That sucks - I feel for ya - but you're still riding!

    I invite pp to sit on my '16 GS w/tall seat) and they all think it's huge. Then I swing a leg over (I'm 6'2") and they think it just fits me.

    Part of the reasons I own one.

    I thought it was just me, ie hip and knee. Glad you can keep riding.
