Thanks! I had the dealer add the GSA panniers and tail rack. The only other shiny things I added were the cylinder guard and tank bag from TT. I'll add more later (as is our way). I got it from Eurocycles in Tampa Bay since there is no longer a BMW dealer in Tallahassee. It was a demo model so I got a nice discount. This is the second bike I bought from them and they've done me right each time.

I was somewhat concerned about the seat height (I have a thread around somewhere on this), but at 5'11 (with boots) I have absolutely no trouble handling this bike. After the first few hundred miles the bike is every bit as good as I heard. In fact, even moreso because the stock seat and fairing have been just fine; no plans to swap them out.

In the spring I'm hoping to do an Appalachian tour topped off with some Virginia Civil War sites.
