The seat that came on my 2004 GS Adventure was "stepped" (see pic below) and better for riders with shorter legs. I found it too low as I flat foot my 2003 GS Adventure with the taller seat. It put too much of a bend in my knees while riding.
I am looking forward to the next trip.
Blue Ridge Parkway?
After hearing horror stories I was pleasantly surprised and had a great time.
horror stories about the BRP?
Ride Safe, Ride Lots
You have been on it more than I! I usually go early in the day, weekdays or "off season" (which is what walerch appears to have done). My son hopped on the BRP this morning in Roanoke and realized he made a big mistake. It was a big fogfest.
I've ridden it [in pieces] twice. about a year ago, I got a bee in my bonnet, and decided to do the whole thing..North-South. It was about the most pleasant two & half days I've ever spent. Perfect weather, Tue,Wed, & Thur AM..I had it almost to myself. Turned around at the bottom and went to Maggie Valley kicked back for a day...came home. Through Cherokee, Gatlinburg , Cumberland Gap.
Next time I'll add Skyline Drive...another I've only done[actually] just a short stretch.
Its been awhile....

Parked on the side of the road...waiting for RS guys to finally catch up!
Stopped on the side of the road in Colorado last year.
