Greetings from Portugal
« on: July 30, 2017, 01:18:27 PM »
Hello XR friends

I'm ROC from Portugal   :002:
I have changed my old GS650F to a XR 3 days ago... yes, it a giant leap.
I was tired from my GS and as a short rider the others GS were not an option so I'm planning to lower the bike and searching also for a low seat but trying to find something more comfortable then the BMW low seat. Maybe you can have any clue where to find a low gel seat in Europe?  :027:
I'm driving it very carefully in Lisbon and totally in love with this new bike but before I was reading lots of your posts to learn more. And I'm really thankful!
And sorry, my English is not good but I will do my best.  :008:
Thanks! Wish you all fantastic rides!  :037:

 :400: :028: Nice looking bike... no info on a seat but I had the lower seat option on mine that reduced the seat height to 820 mm from the standard 840 and it made a noticeable difference for myself .

 :400: ROC, Perhaps with the lowering kit you'll not need a low seat !
