I wanted to follow up on my original post, but it has expired. So, a new thread/update. I bought the 52537698379 seat, which is 1.2" lower than the standard seat that came on my '07 R1200R. There was discussion on the ramp up from the rider position to the passenger part of the seat and how it tends to fix you in one spot. I found this to be true on my trial ride today. It may or may not be an issue on a long trip. On my test ride today, I wore a worn out pair of Cabelas hiking boots and the ground touching ability of the low seat was OK and will be better with proper foot gear. The thinner padding compared to the stock seat was not an issue on today's short ride. Don't know how that will work out on an all day ride. So, the low seat met my expectations.
