    Made my own head guards. I don't think anything is going through that 1/8 inch aluminum

    I've had a very bad experience with the SmartSwitch and its vendor..

    In my opinion the HexEZCan is much better in quality, finish, and price... also, from a reputable vendor.

    2017 low. Darla's and Billie light added. Also, installed seats from a 2016 ADV I bought here from an inmate, not shown in pics. And yes, the front Anakee is noisey!

    Curious. What is the benefit of the GSA seat. Do you get more foot pegs to seat height than the GS seat?

    The low version of the bike comes with a low seat, as in the pics. Not enough leg room for me. Also it is wider in the front than the GSA seat. With the taller GSA seat I have better leg room and can actually touch the ground better as in flat footed. Why I bought the low bike. I may also add SW-Motech pegs to run in the low position.

    The jury is still out however as to how comfy the seat will be as I have only ridden it about 100 miles at a time since new. 500 miles total so far.

    The reason I went this way is because I sat on a new low GSA and it does not come with a low seat like the regular GS. I almost bought it as I could flat foot the big dog but decided I did not need the big tank and racks. Also I liked the Darla's better than the factory lights that come on the GSA. The dealer got in two regular low triple black GS's and decided to go that way and add the seat I had seen here for sale.

    Thanks. I also have a 2016 Triple Black GS and added Darlas. Love it.

    H-Jay and Dirt Rider....
    Holy crap I have no idea what the two of you just said... I have a GSA low, the lows DO NOT come with a low seat. My seat is the exact same as the seat on my buddies GSA... which is not a low. This I do not know for a fact, but I've read the BMW Low Seats do not come in split colors, just one solid color.

    Edit: Actually I just don't understand Dirt Rider

    I said in my post that the GSA's do not come with a low seat like the regular GS's. What's not to understand. I put the taller GSA seats on a regular low GS. Re- read it. The low seats on my new GS are two tone. Look at the pic.

    I guess I wasn't looking out the bottom part of my glasses last night, doc put the bi-focal part in there for a reason!

    Thanks. It is shame they stop producing the Green. I think it is a great color for GSA
