    Greetings everyone
    New member here and my first post. Straight away, an admission: I'm not an owner...yet. But I do have first refusal on a very nice 2017 F800R which I have just viewed but due to lockdown can't road test for another month or so. Really looking forward to riding it though. I'm still researching the bike and do have a couple of quick questions for those who know (that's you lot) please.
    1. I would certainly want to fix a screen of some kind, No doubt other threads on here on this subject but are there any quick recommendations? The MRA one looks ok but I haven't found any others yet
    2. Can someone clarify the situation re. the "adjustable seat height". I understand 3 heights are avialable but is this an aftersale accesory or can the existing seat be modified? I would be interested in the taller option being 6.1 in height.
    Thanks!

    Welcome,

    Regards seat height, it's three separate seats.

    At over six foot I suspect you would prefer the high.

    I’ll say on the screen that my advice is to take an MRA, but if I were you, I would google the screens and pick them up for myself so that I could use it. Tales are generally love. In general, I am engaged in software development. I always need to keep abreast of the latest events, for this I read https://sirinsoftware.com/services/h...e_development/, because this is just a top service with the best community and just an excellent presentation of information. Definitely, I recommend it to those who are connected with IT.
