Hi I have a 2012 GS800 which I have from 2013. I love the bike and it suits my purposes.
I have just a problem with my comfort riding the bike. It's an a$$ killer. Yesterday riding into Midrand from Centurion, approx. 12 Km , I experienced again numbness (pins and needles) in my pelvis area. The palms of my hands hurt as if I am doing handstands on them. Then I have to be really careful when I put out my right leg at a stop else it cramps in the upper leg area.
I have had the seat padded, lowered the front so my feet can touch the ground better. What else can i do to make the ride more comfortable? Note I have an Kawasaki which I can ride all day everyday and experience none on this pain. So it's definitely something with the GS.

Consider an Airhawk seat. I have one you can buy over if interested.

Hi, I suggest a "Voltaren depository" pill in the pelvis area before a ride, it will help. Enjoy! :evil: :bounce:
