    Same as me although I'm four inches taller (I'm the tallest guy in the World sitting down!). I've got the F800GS with the low seat and an Airhawk and I can't quite flat-foot it but I've got the balls of my feet on the ground on both sides or flat-foot one side and toes the other.

    Thanks, good to know! I suppose there are some options to lower the suspension too if need be?

    I hate the big Vasolene jar of brake fluid on the handlebars. Couldn't they have come up with something different?

    Wasn't the original plan apparently but air bubbles were getting into the fluid due to vibration so they came up with the 'stalk'. You can get a "thingy" from Touratech; it's not a problem.

    Anyway, piss off all of you, this thread is for pics! :lol3

    I guess it just needs a GPS in front of it. :)

    It's still my favorite bike out there right now.

    Thanks for that, so maybe with a lower seat I should be pretty darn close. :evil

    The exact prices are still unspecified and baked into my total lump price of bike and parts and I expect the special pannier frame & brackets + panniers to be very near same for the R1200GSA.

    I'll give my dealer a call tomorrow and have them specify the prices.:freaky

    Joe Bar,

    You have a pic of a blue 800GS from wonderlich with what looks to be a different front wheel. Any info on that? I would prefer a smaller wheel in front.:ear

    Both the blue Wunderlich bike and the white AC Schnitzer bike were both running 17" rims front and rear. There's no information in the catalogue I picked up, so no more information I'm afraid.

    The seat looked really nice, but the guy on the stand said they were prototypes with no production decision made yet.
