No, I didn't mean to target anyone in particular. There has just been a lot of talk of "lowered Sertaos" which is basically a stock G650GS. You can get spoked wheels for the regular version and I'd...

I don't full understand why someone would opt for a Sertao if their plan is to lower it. Basically you are just paying extra for a taller G650GS and then paying to lower it... Spoke rims can't be...
