K1600GTL High Seats for sale
« on: February 14, 2019, 01:36:32 am »
Hi guys

I've not posted in this section before, and I could not see any rules, so if I'm breaking any let me know ;)

I have two BMW seats for sale, one is a BMW High Seat, and the other is a Tony Archer one done about 6 months ago, both like new, and both for the K1600 GTL.

Full details are here:

I wasn't aware that BMW produced a "high" seat, I know they did a normal and a low seat. Have your seats had extra padding added to make them "high" ?

BMW do three seats for the K1600 GTL, you just have to find them as I found some dealers simply do not know what they can and cannot get hold of.

The LOW seat is what it comes with from new and you can also get a HIGH and extra HIGH seat, all direct from BMW. The EXTRA HIGH is only available with a new bike, not as an aftermarket item bizarly enough. This one is a Genuine BMW HIGH seat from BMW with no alterations, but I do also have for sale a "Tony Archer" BMW low seat (the one the bike came with) which has been re filled/shaped and upholstered by Tony to be higher and wider than the BMW HIGH seat I have, so it's now like the EXTRA HIGH seat for BMW but obviously Tony has worked his magic on it and made it slightly softer, longer and wider.

I could not find any saying I could not post a link, and I didn't want to list it all again, so thought I'd be polite as I'm still new here - you old guys can probably do what you want  ;D

Or the old  :o

Rules? Hmm...

Rae's not too keen on profanity (or gender stereo-typing, apparently)
Richard's not too keen on software piracy
Matt is not too keen
Bob's not
I am

Them's the rules!

I'm not too keen on fitting top boxes to any sports tourer and especially a K1300S.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

A bit like an itch in an embarrassing part of the body, not necessarily something to be proud of or to shout about! ;)
Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!
