Wunderlich low profile seat ordered
Wunderlich upper protection bars ordered

I hope that is enough... I need to also check on how sag is set on this bike to see if there is anything that I can adjust there to make the challenges with my height less of an issue...
Ride safe!

Everything arrived  :152:

Will not post install photos as the instructions are amazingly clear and with color photos.  You can just download the installation pdf document if you want to see them before buying them...

OMG...! The Wunderlich Lowered Seat seems to be even lower than the BMW lowered version...! Is there any chance for you to do a comparison? I'm in the same world... I'm 162cm tall... (but I own the F750GS, which is narrower than the 850GSA) How tall are you?

I am 57 and shrinking.  Seat made an improvement over the stock seat I had.  But my stock seat is not the lower version..

Not sure yet about long ride comfort as we were stopping every 100 miles (one of the bikes in the group had a limited range)

How many miles have you racked up?  Any services besides initial one...costs? I moved to a GSA from GS in late November and only 270 miles before temps and snow.

7507 miles.  Nothing so far... only oil changes, cleaning the chain, etc.  normal maintenance.
