I've got a 27" inside leg and a 1200GS with a low seat, a BMW option. Cost me less than US$200.00 took about 3 mins to change seats and I can get both feet flat on the ground with the boxes on and a touring load. Overall yes it is a bit big and took a little bit of getting used to and maybe given my time again I might have bought some other beast but after 150,000mls (250,000km) 98% overseas occasionally on unsealed roads, Africa twice, Alaska, Yukon, Labrador, and the South American classics Rt 40, Caraterra Austral, Road of Death and others I ended up on by accident and couldn't turn the bike round and just had to keep going , maybe not. Just think what you could have done with the extra US$1,000.00 in your travel wallet. Ride safe.
