Hello all, just purchased a 2007 R12 a few weeks ago. Been riding cruisers my whole life so this is new to me. Still not sure about it yet. Having issues with comfort being I’m a bigger guy. Time will tell.

Lots of bigger guys ride GS's with no issue. GS actually facilitate bigger riders pretty well.

Good news is if you do not end up meshing with your GS it is a desirable bike and will be easy to sell.

Hope you can get it to work for you if not GLWS,


You'll love it. But is is different than a cruiser especially at low speeds. When you go off road completely avoid gravel mud and sand until you are very comfortable with its high weight
