Then up on the vehicle. With a standard GSA, it's not that easy, at least for small people. The seat height is usually between 890 and 910mm. Our test machine, on the other hand, has an extra-deep bench, so that we swing into the saddle without any problems. And that's where we feel poodle-like.
We can't say exactly how BMW does it, but it's really like coming home. Everything is in the right place and the operation succeeds practically by itself - except for the BMW's own turn signal control with separate blinker rear-set, but BMW newcomers get used to it in no time.
Manoeuvring is more of a problem with the GSA. Especially when it's fully refueled! The tank with 33 liters of content offers a bombastic range of about 600 km, but the already heavy machine becomes even heavier. For strong guys this may not matter, but smaller not so strong people have to do with the GSA already. But we don't really want to rank, we want to drive - and that's what we're doing now.
