I have a GS factory made. No changes done. The measurement is 53 cm or 20 3/4 inches. Hope this will help you.

GOOD question. Since I don't have one, I'll need you to measure yours! 😀What about the BMW 1250GS/GSA? Or adding handlebar riser to the G310GS?
21" peg-to-seat with lowered seat? That looks Good.Handlebar to peg 33.5", seat 21". With lowering pegs, maybe 22"-23".
Sorry but I have to laugh at that. With the exception so far of the G310R/G310GS, every single BMW that I have straddled is geared for tall "Germans". 5'10" or taller with long legs. Stock seat height is 34" on every single BMW except for the G310R......
It seems that bike frames are designed for an 'average' (?) rider ... 5'5" and 150 pounds?
Thanks - for the input, Elau180 ... MUCH appreciated.Sorry but I have to laugh at that.

I should add the GS/GSA bikes the foot peg is further forward compared to the RT's. Meaning less of a crouch like sports bike and more chair like for those with knees that don't like being folded up too much, and not as far forward as cruisers which are more lazy-boy seating.
But I also hear you and understand your description of "hunchback". No clue about the T7 or KLR650, never looked at or even straddled either. I mainly bought the R1200RT as I needed a commuter/alternate transportation vehicle, meaning top case, side case, and wanted the boxer engine low center of gravity. I tried to lift a 1000cc top-heavy and could barely even lift it off the side stand and this was a show room unit, meaning no battery, no fuel, etc....Imagine if this was fully prepped unit......
I think no matter which ride you settle with, you're going to have to do some sort of customization. Whether it be lower pegs, taller seat, riser, etc....
Sorry could not really offer more advise or information. Good luck in your search.
Looks like 18.5" peg to seat give or take .5"Would someone measure and report the G310GS foot-peg to seat height (i.e. to the standard stock seat)?
Thanks - so much - for taking a moment for this, which will tell me a LOT.
