Anyone got a low frame f650gs near Atlanta?

My girlfriend is looking at the f650 -- wants to sit on a low frame option F650 to compare to the standard one. Anyone got one they wouldn't mind someone coming by to just sit on it (no need to ride it)?

If so, please PM me. Many thanks in advance.

Geoff

I wouldn't lower the suspension on the bike because you'll lose value when trying to resell it, it's expensive, ect. My girlfriend is 5'2" and weighs 110lbs and she rides my f650 without any problems. You can adjust the dampener on the stock suspension so it's softer and lower for her. You can also get the lower seat. That way you won't hamper the bike's handling and it's already low ground clearance.

They have one at the BMW dealer on 41 by Dobbins. I sat on it today.

No low frame version here, but what the hell is a "02 Kona Hei Hei?"

Sounds cool whatever it is.

Good luck with the search. I love my F650, I am sure she will too. I think lowerring the forks in the triple clamp is doable on the lil GS...I think I remember someone saying by no more than 3 mm.....double check me.
