K1200GT your settings/preferences

sure your weight
Your ESA settings preload/dumping
Your feet position
handlebar position

Max, you should try eating less food coloring, especially red and green and try and stay away from high sugar drinks too. This should help.

Too much Information, ha.

I'm 180 but close to 200 with gear/boots, wife, well estimate 135 with gear. I run 1 helmet with luggage /normal, if twisties go to sport. If real twisties, chuck topbox, 2 helmets with sport.

Alone, 1 helmet/normal till pushing twisties then sport.

PR2s 40 front 42 rear. Stock windshield 40% up for pushing, 90% up for cruising.

Handlebars full up.

12 Super Tenere 1200 (coming soon)
10 MTS1200 standard (riding)
09 Monster 696 (wife's ride)

I used to weigh 100 pounds.

Ballooned up to 220 pounds due to a thyroid condition - and I'm only 3 feet tall.

Same settings as Max. Same farkles, just don't have the hideous Aeroguards bolted on.

Coincidence?

Sorry Max, I couldnt resist.

I wasnt having a crack at your weight though mate as I am 240. All those questions just sounded a bit hyperactive when I read them.

Its a holiday here today to remember our fallen soldiers from all conflicts but particularly Gallipolli so as I open my first beer, Salut`e
