Short R1250GSA rider screen question

I've just put a deposit down on an '19 model R 1250 GS Adventure Exclusive TE (phew!) with the low-chassis option since I'm a short-arse at 5'4" with a 29" inseam.

Sadly I've not been able to test-ride one since the low-chassis versions is apparently pretty rare in the part of the UK I'm in, although I have sat one one that was in for a service, so I couldn't ride it.

I'm not overly worried about the hight since I was able to put feet down on the bike, but I can't for the life of me remember what the view out the front looked like!

Do you short riders look over or through the screen?

Get the shorter screen that comes with the HP edition

I also have a 29" inseem and a low version of a R1200GS.

I adjust the wind screen and look over it no problem.

Your going to enjoy the ride.

I have a '17 low. I'm 5'10" with a 30" inseam stock windscreen, all the way up, I still have a sight line about 4" OVER the top. That said, I have almost all the slipstream over the top of my helmet.
