    Standard version. Not sure on the seat position on the bike as seen but works well for me in the low position. I’m 5’10” with 32inch leg.

    I wanted the HP design but in the show room they had only some with gold wheels – but dealer swapped wheels with another one for black spoke wheels. That was the final straw that made me buy it. Love the bike so far and in another week I'll have it mostly done ... ;-)

    Low version, which is why I bought a new bike.
    I was fine with the old one with regular height, but the low handles a lot better and now I can reach the ground with no second thought.

    Nice to hear because I was a little reluctant buying the low version I’m picking up today.

    Ok, I went with a low version with a 30 inch inseam
    figured I’m getting older and weaker lol.
    I have black wheels on the exclusive but I like both.

    I bought the gold wheels, just for a change. Never had gold rims before. :)

    Dealer had a GSA that was rode off road, the black rims had lots of scratches and they really stand out.

    I rode my mine up to the UP to pick up some pasties this morning. I hope your break in ride went well.

    Yep, I just did 175, running in miles. Had to slap my right wrist a few times for bad behavior.

    Had to go to the bike shop to pick up a replacement headlight globe for my 2018 DL1000 and came home with this -

    Went for a ride on Saturday to the Grey Gums Cafe on the Putty Road, it rained all the way there and back, about 200km. The bike handled really well in the wet -

    My wife was on her R 1200 RS. It's her fault that I bought a BMW. I'm glad she talked me into it.

    Hello to All, Just bought a 2020 1250GSA . Will be picking it up soon. Had a question on Handler Bar risers. I'm 6'4" wondering if as I go up I will need to bring bars back. Know it is a preference, but someone my size able to chime in??

    I'm sure everyone is different . Use Rox risers, don't tighten them up all the way, sit on the bike and as you try different positions you will know when it's right for you.
