50mm Hyper pro shocks and springs and its great

I "dealt" with my height issues for a year with my F800GS. (5'7" 30 inch inseam) low seat etc and finally decided to take the "plunge" and get the lower Hyperpro kit. It has made the bike both more rideable and more enjoyable for me. I was also able to add the "comfort" BMW seat so my net gain is only an inch but the bike rides better on and off road. Yes there are some possible clearance issues and I do really ride my GS off road. rugged jeep trails in AZ and Montana. That said I have not bottomed out and the comfort factor was well worth it. The components in the Hyper Pro set up are just better and completely worth the trade off in a slightly lower bike. Just my .02
