    Hi everybody, I got cleared to put weight on my legs and pelvis and I was able to stand and walk with a walker on Thursday the 12th of March. Before I was able to stand I decided that it would be a good idea to propel my wheelchair by 'walking' while seated and I think that did a lot to help my leg muscles. My Orthopedic Surgeon tells me my bones are healing faster than expected.

    I can't ride yet but I got the check for my wrecked bike and saw a replacement at a fair price.

    The seat on my new F800GS seems different than the seat on my 2013 F800GS is it the low seat?

    Looks like a low seat to me, based on the angle of the pic

    I won't be riding for awhile but I'm trying to decide if it would be better to start with my DRZ 400S which is lighter but also taller.
