I have the mudsling installed. I have about the same amount of clearance but haven't had issues. Just let it go man. It'll be fine. Probably. :)

I bought a Corbin seat for my 2008 K1200GT and it was excellent for my 5'11" frame. Sold the bike and the seat's for sale. Hint, hint.

I can see wanting the water cooled version, but I bought mine when I did because it's (probably) the last year of the air cooled R12Rs. Wanted something relatively simple.

I'm with you here. I love the way the Classic looks but didn't want to deal with a tube. Went for the 90th anniversary instead and couldn't be happier with the bike.

Right now I have it mounted on a Shoei X-11 with no problems but it's time for a new helmet and I'm really digging the Schuberth. I'll stop by the dealer today and check it out.

Schuberth S2 and Sena SMH10

Can I mount a Sena SMH10 on a Schuberth S2? Wondering if the mounting clip will work with that helmet. I haven't had a chance to see one in person and appreciate any insight.

Thanks.

I agree that it doesn't take the place of using the motorcycle as a power hub. It's clearly more for multi-day backpacking. Still cool if it works. :)

The stretch material itself flows air pretty well but the armor stops airflow, at least in my experience. The material is fine, but I roast under the armor. Not sure there's much to do about that.
