I currently ride a 1993 R100GSPD which is a bit tall for me. However in 2008 and 2009 I did both the TDF (Ushuaia) and Prudhoe Bay rides on this great airhead. But, in March I suffered a stroke which left me weak on the left side and with a significantly impaired left arm.
I am still riding but cannot mount or dismount the GSPD without help. I am planning a trip to Panama in the spring and wonder if a 2011 F650GS might be the right bike for this 68 y/o slightly handicapped rider. By the way, I have only a 30 inch inseam and am pondering the regulat suspension with a low seat. Advice or suggestions? NO! It is not time for either a trike or a scooter.
