The Z Technick came with the bike and I think it's the tall one, which works great for me, maybe someone here can clarify on that ... it's adjustable on the factory mounts, I just did when I installed my Rox risers. The rack for the side cases were off when I got the bike but it doesn't look like it would take that long it's just a few nuts and bolts here and there ... Definitely lightens it up and gives the bike a slicker look. I like the aggressive look from the front it the slim look of the back ...

The Rox risers are 2" and are perfect, standing up on the pegs was a little weird having to lean way forward but the risers resolved that issue, definitely changes the riding position but feels great, switched the factory mounts forward, I might try to switch them back to original just to see the difference.

Measured the Z Technick, it is the tall one at 23", I am 5'6'' and it is working fine for me.

I figured it was in GB, the weather is not really accommodating over there comparing to the So Cal weather ... You'll be able to do plenty of great riding around here. There are so many different choices and changes of terrain we are truly blessed being here ... Desert, mountain, coast line, twisties you name it ...

I spent 3 months bidding on eBay and winning while not meeting the reserve! By the time I saw an ad on Craig's list for 2011 GSA with bag's loaded and 13k miles, I knew it was a steal so I took it! Great decision and 15 miles from home! So, point being, be patient. And I was all excited about a good adventure/road trip but didn't need to do that. This is my 3rd BMW and I have found that Beemer riders take good care of them and if serviced at a dealer, they will give you a printout of the service history. Good luck!
