    I see your points sir and sorry for lost interest.
    However, considering almost 40 years of your experiece you should be fond of golden memories.

    Just like you mentioned, I believe that in my case, there is no such thing as I "need" a specific model to
    do something. It more depends on how much I am willing to commit.
    But, I just couldn't find a way to describe better with so many advertising pharases in nowadays.

    I think after I take a test drive, I will order one with the comfort seat (height would be almost same as the standard)
    and ESA and a few more nice things to add.

    My wife and I ride all over the place on my F650Gs the only thing you will need is a good seat. I tried a few and we settled on the Sargent I highly recomend it over any of the OEM options http://www.sargentcycle.com/bmwwsf800.htm

    Test ride a 1200 with your wife. But you better be ready to buy it.

    Sorry, yes, the smaller GA is adequate for 2 up, but nothing, nothing beats the 1200 in this regard.

    So, a good seat seems to be the one that I really should focus on finding. I know that Sargent has gained
    its fame from many riders. I will include Sargent into candidates.

    Yeah, I know R1200gs would make me soooo thrilled and general conception.

    I will test-drive both R1200gs and F700gs and see how it's going to turn out.

    But whatever I end up with, I am a man with pleasant worries. :D
