    Put down the $500 deposit Friday afternoon. Order has been placed. Now it's time for Berlin to do its thing while I sit back and wait around for the next two months.

    I admire your patience. There is NO WAY I could wait that long for something so cool.

    I've sat on a GSA in the showroom and it didn't feel too tall for me. I was able to get my toes on the ground with the bike on the center-stand, so I'm presuming I'll be able to touch the ground when the bike is off the center-stand.

    If I'm an idiot, and I'm buying a bike that's too big for me, let me know before it's too late!
    I am 5' 9-1/2" with a 30" inseam, and I ride a GSA. Granted I bought it mainly as an Iron Butt and sport-touring bike and do not off-road it, but I feel very comfortable on it. I had a F650 Dakar a while back that helped me get comfortable on a tall bike, and now the GSA feels no more difficult than my daily rider (R1100RT).

    The R1200GSA is more fun than just about any bike I have ever owned or ridden. The tank allows for very long legs, and the handling allows me to out-ride some of my sport bike buddies in the twisties. If you go for it you will love it.

    Good for you! I just got back from Duesseldorf where my cousin's husband just took delivery of his tripple black...the only thing he changed was replacing the seat with seats from Baehr (www.baehr.net) Really looks good!
