When you close it, Its natural tendency is to fall in LOW position, unless you really insist to put in high. The technique is easier to demonstrate when in front of bike.
Look at attached picture: if you see a large gap as shown with Yellow arrows, then you are in High. Otherwise this gap is very small and you are in LOW (default and most common position used by most riders shorter than 6 feet).
Thanks for the photo. (nice bike too)
I will check mine tomorrow.
On the seat cover coming off the staples in the middle on both sides.
I took it to the guy who recovered our kitchen chairs.
He stapled it really well with about 6 staples on both sides in 30 seconds with an air stapler. No charge. (but he is getting a case beer!)
Still One hell of a bike!!!
Anyone had an K1200 RS and then got a k1200S or a K1300S?
I need a comparison. I would not get rid of the 1200RS, I'd just get a k1200S or a K1300S. (or would another 1200RS be just as good?) (have another house in a different city and need a K bike there too. I just thought a different one might be interesting.
Which is better 2 up. the 1200RS, 1200S or 1300S?
I love the riding position of the RS as I too old to bend over much more.
So if the S models are a more radical riding position I might have to pass and get another RS.
