[QUOTE=LarryGee;18181885]Better save you pennies. Appearance farkels are fine however, young man/old man, what you will find out is that the stock seat will kill your ass. Most uncomfortable, forward sloping seat I have ever ridden on. Well, almost the worst.
You can try the cheap way out for circulation (Bead Rider, Airhawk) but the only way to fix the way BMW has the seat pushing you into the gas tank is to have it re sculptured or get a different seat.
i agree 100% on the seat i changed my 1100rt and my klr to a sargent and it is really nice, want to do the same thing for the gs, i changed the mirrors to carbon fiber bar end mirrors and they work really well in town i dont know about a trip they may be a bit small. i also changed the bars to a klr handlebar which is wider much better feel and controll,
