This may be old news to you guys, but it was news to me.
Just got back from BMW Daytoma Beach, they have the first "Short frame" R1200GS on the floor.
According to the dealer it has a "shorter subframe and a different seat", he said it has standard shocks.
My wife has an 07 R1200GS with short Olin shocks and the low BMW seat, the short frame bike she sat on at the dealership was LOWER!
By the look on her face I have a feeling that this is going to be expensive!
