    New boy on the forum

    Hi, new boy here, joined today.
    Well actually was here years ago during my various BMW bike days, and at 67 not technically a boy.
    Currently riding Hondas, an Africa Twin Adventure Sport 1000 , and CRF250 Rally.
    I have a test ride on a 1250 GSA this Friday to see if I should trade in my Africa Twin. My main issue is my height. At full stretch i am six foot six but only claim 6 foot five now due to being almost dead.
    So hoping I will fit but I suspect the seat will prevent me sliding back far enough. My Africa Twin seat height is 920 mm and I can slide back over the passenger seat should I fancy. I can flat foot with bent knees !
    Torn between the Ice grey and rallye. Will let you know how I get on.

    Welcome.

    You've got 5"/6" on me and I'd like three of them, please (in the leg only).
    "I must be traveling on now 'cause there's too many places I've got to see.

    Welcome to the forum

    You can get a rally seat for the GS that will allow you to slide back, either spec it on your order if you can or look for one on here

    Enjoy your test ride
