F800GS with 30" inseam?

After considering many options & almost buying a low suspension standard F800GS and a regular-height used F800GS, I was inspired by Leslie (Soph9) to get what I really wanted - the F800 GSA. I was lucky to find one used from a fellow ADV inmate in my state & we made a deal last Saturday.

It was too tall for me initially with standard suspension settings & seat but once I took some preload out of the rear & put on the low seat it's fine for me to handle! As I get more experience & confidence I'll continue adding preload to get it closer to standard.

I love it & I'll be putting lots of miles on it. Now I just have to build up some vacation time again after recently switching companies.

There is hope for those of us with shorter legs after all!
