    Yes, much. I owned an R1150R and have owned (and still do) an '08K12GT. Especially with bar risers and peg lowerers, the bike is very comfortable and roomy, with an upright seating position.

    I just bought a Wunderlich Ergo tall. Well made and was able to ride it in comfort for 635 miles on the first day. I wouldn't buy another Corbin to save my life. I still suffer after 11,000 miles...

    How to tell if you have a GSL?

    I'm watching this thread because I'm one who wound up with a lowered bike and am restoring it to stock.

    The bike is a 2006 GS. We bought it for my wife new. We had a 1" Kouba Link installed and...

    It's not mounted to te fuel filler, but whatever you do, do not buy the BMW bran tank bag for this bike. It is an absolute piece of junk. I bought mine 2 years ago, have put all of 6-7,000 miles...

    Get a GS or an RT, either of which is a lot more fun to ride. The 1200GT is the most disappointing bike I've ever ridden, from a ridability perspective. It functions nearly flawlessly - aside from...

    John -

    The 1150 is slow and the 1100 is slower. I've owned both machines and put many thousands of miles on them. I've also owned a hexhead and it's much better. I took a solo cross-country...

    I have no doubt that yours is best, but simply from a customer's perspective, your seats (and Russell's) are too hard to buy. It's not a simple "point and click" affair where you fill in...

    Stock seats are horrible. I dumpem the one on my '08 GT early on and bought a Corbin. HUGE mistake. The Corbin is horrible. It's like sitting on a board. While it's shape much improves on stock,...

    I owned a 1998 RS, an '04 GT and currently a 2002 RS, so I have some experience with the breed. I think the old GT and the RS are two of the finest bikes BMW has ever built and I've owned...

    K1200GT ('08) screen suggestions?

    I bought this bike new 3 years ago, have put 9,000 miles on it and am still trying to "be one" with the bike. It's the 12th, or so, BMW I've owned and, perhaps, the most totally unexciting one I've...

    It certainly is a great bike but has a few issues. The transmission is clunky unless you are very careful about pre-loading the shifter; the ESA isn't half as good as a set of well-adjusted Ohlins. ...

    Don't buy a Corbin w/o reading my experience.
