    Can you post a picture with Rallz on big GS? Especially the front tire.

    That discount is only rumored. Someone should let me know if it’s real though.

    Only when I suit up, put my helmet on, and then realize I left the keys in the house...

    Nothing done "to" the GS today, but for it...

    My dogs Kuryakyn box got a big old sag in it last time we were out. She likes to ride with her front paws out, chest resting on the top while she sits inside. Had to fix that as she was falling out.

    I got my Sargent low seat for my '19 GSA Friday and took it out for a short ride this AM, between the thunderstorms. Really a nothing deal. The seat is much firmer and slightly wider than the original. I like to ride with the front up and the rear down and wanted the low seat to give me a little more purchase when I have to put my feet down. I don't notice the low Sergent being any lower than the original. Just my $0.02...

    Maybe try Low in the front as well and see if that helps.

    I've got the Sargent low seat on my '15 GSA. It is lower, as the seat to peg distance has reduced, however, the Sargent seat is wider at the front, between the legs, so when you put your foot down your legs are further splayed, making the reach to the ground further than the stock seat.

    I had a local auto upholstery shop shave some foam from the front of the seat to narrow it a bit, it now feels more secure when stationary, but it doesn't effect the riding position.

    I might have someone do the same. The seat is nice to keep in low/low without sliding forward, but with gear on the front does splay you a bit

    Thank you Will try next if I can find them. They seem to be sold out where I live.
    As for the GT 723, the rubber compound is very soft and they will not last long indeed. But I was surprised how cushioned was the ride over bumps and sharp chops.

    The BMW protection is not enough for the off-road.

    Machine Art is not available in Switzerland for now.

    Back in April I got the MotoZ Tractionator Adventures on my set of Woodys. I was shocked by the lock up in bad off road conditions. (Super slick, sticky deep mud. Getting out of situations was no problem with these tires. Didn't prevent getting into situations due to a heavy bike though nor did I expect them to.)
    On the road the front is squirly in certain conditions.
    Not sure if you've tried the Adventures, but if you had how would you compare? I've read the RallZ is slightly more off-road focused.

    I have been running them for years on my 2014 DRZ400S. I can tell you the front and rear normally has a break in period of 600-1000 miles after that they are not squirly at all. I have not put them on my GSA yet but I am going to. They are a great tire at least on my 400 lb DRZ.
