I would love a GSA sometime next year and would do only bitumen and gravel roads. My biggest drop risk is parking and slow maneuvering.

Is a GSA manageable for someone my size?
I am riding the GSA with the regular seat (5'8" 30 inseam). Before that, I rode a R1200 GSA. The 800 is easier to handle.
