Great to read up on this, I'm 1.74m tall (5.6ft?) I can balance the bike with my toes, or leen to one side, but I'm worried when carrying a passenger, and was also thinking when getting the F800GS to get the lower seat, I think they say its 850mm compared to the standard 880mm, do you think this will be enought to make a difference, any one out there that is +/- my hight ?

I was also worried about a passenger but then remembered the extra weight will add sag to th bike actually making it lower. First time my wife rode with me I had to have her get off before I put the sidestand down because their wasn't enough clearence (she only weighs 110 lbs)
