Nice bike ZM. Even in the lowest setting it's too tall for me, after researching it 1.6" is what you gain or lose. Being vertically challenged there are not many bikes short enough for me. Looks like the BMW F series with the SOLS option would work.

A Suzuki DR400 looks interesting , light and powerful if horribly ugly and with too a high seat for me. It's possible to lower it but the uglies remain.

A dual sport has no need to have esthetic value. It's just a tool.

I've got to like the look of any bike I own, the way it looks (to me) is important.

BMW needs to build a GS750 boxer under 400 pds. 3/4 the size of a 1200 GS designed to be serviced by the owner.
I'm holding out for the K1200 dirt version, so I can flick around all 800+ lbs in the dirt and break some really expensive plastic parts. If they ever perfect the 2-wheel drive system and get the right knobbies to plant all 130hp, the Earth's rotational speed might be in jeopardy. :lol:

My dual sport RS looks superb. Suits me.
