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.
No more sag!! time to ride! (she wears a harness and is tethered in so she cant jump out when we are riding)
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
Here's the the rear freshly mounted:
This is the front, when it was close to new: https://advrider.com/f/threads/lets-see-your-gs-offroad.377766/page-190#post-38450616
Right now the front is almost done, but I can post the pic of it tomorrow if you want.
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.
I change from this
Wunderlich with Sw-Motech crash-bars.
The BMW protection is not enough for the off-road.
Machine Art is not available in Switzerland for now.
My new $26 Amazon LEDs showed up yesterday so I got to work building a wiring harness
This lead to a custom toggle switch bracket I made out of 1" x 1/16 aluminum angle
Then another custom sub harness for the FZ1
While everything was apart some dee cleaning
And a new air filter for good measure
Installed Quad Lock's inductive charging puck for an iPhone Xs, plugged into a Cllena DIN USB adapter (green ring in photo)
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.
Rode it! Mt Herman road to Rampart range road to Hotel Gulch road to Deckers to 285 to C-470 to Sante Fe drive back home. Stopped in Pine for this pic.
Finally got around to giving my bike a proper wash. First time using SC1 and man this stuff is amazing. Makes my bike look brand new again.
^^ Riding beyond Sbux and has a sticker to prove it - well done...
Haha it's one of my favorite stickers
+1 on the SC1 High gloss coating!
I got turned onto this stuff about a year ago and love it.
