I forgot if I asked, but how much adjusting did you have to do going from the K bike to new GSA? I'd imagine quite different starting point.

I prefer the lean forward position on the K bike for aggressive, mountain and curvy roads. However, I found it easy to adjust to the more upright position on the GS and more than willing to give up that somewhat more comfortable position/comfort for the off road capabilities of the GSA. thumbsup

I spent 3 days with Jim Ford this Spring learning how to ride in the Blue Ridge back roads. He emphasized posture and lane positioning for maximum visibility and safety. He's a great instructor and I left the a much better rider. Highly recommended.

If you want to know proper posture, look at motorcycle sales ads.

If my mind wanders, should I follow it?
