I have a factory lowered GS and did the BMW 2 day off road course on one. Didn't have any issues.

Here's a pic of my wing man and his wife on the Dalton Highway with his lowered GSA:


They did the Denali and Top of the World Highways two up and never had an issue.

3 of us did the Dalton to the arctic circle 2 summers ago now. One had a lowered GS1200, he also had no issues, and there were major potholes that would rattle your teeth.

Saw Goldwings and Harleys on that road, they sit much lower than the GS's, even the lowered version.
