After I purchased my 2012 R1200GSA I took the time and measured the amount if sag with me sitting on the bike with gear and all three aluminum cases on (relatively empty cases). With the ESA setting on one helmet plus luggage it is set almost perfect with around 66mm of rear sag.

But does any of this really matter? or when i am riding alone with just the side cases on should I put the ESA to one helmet (rider only) and go?

The dealership said I should just set it to one helmet and go, but my OCD tells me not all riders are the same weight and would sag a bike to different degrees.

Thoughts on this? Thanks.
