Should I get the suspension mode add on and traction control?
I'm debating whether I want a lowered one or not, when I sit on a regular one my feet aren't completely flat, I'm like 5"10.
The F800 had a bunch of issues when the came out, to be expected with a completely new line. BMW pretty much fixed them. For the height you really need to get on the bike. In my option if you plan on riding off road a lot you need the 21" front wheel if riding more road the F700 is a better bike. I personnley don't care for the electronic ride control but I ride off road more and prefer the bike to be set up for off road. Good luck on your purchase and let us know which direction you went.
