Welcome to the forum! I purchased my white G310Gs from Iron Horse BMW in February. I haven't been riding as much as I'd like, part due to heat, part due to time constraints. I have Giant Loop Coyote saddlebags and am awaiting a SeatConcepts tall seat. Enjoy your new G310GS!

My 2018 GGS arrived today. Needs saddlebags and smoother saddle.
I may have made a serious mistake. We will see.

When riding the GGS, I feel locked into plate by the saddle. I cannot move back because of the "hump" in the saddle behind the driver's butt. I will take it to a saddle guy this week to see if the hump can be removed and the saddle flattened. If this cannot be done, I do not want the bike.

The bike has some wonderful virtues, but I cannot live with the stock saddle.

That's because you are. The "low" seat is even worse (which is why I went back to the standard seat).

Not sure if you can even out the hump - it looks like the bike's frame may interfere.

Please let us (or at least me) know if you get a solution.

Wow, less than one day on the bike and you have what sounds like, given up on it.
Did you not sit on it or take it for a spin before you bought it?:surprise:

The Seat Concepts tall seat for the G310GS seems to have eliminated the hump.
So does standing on the pegs.

But I do like to get at least one foot down at a stop without being in the process of dropping it before that foot contact occurs.

So sayeth the short-legged individual. :grin2:

I did not care for the locked-in-one-place seat or the ergonomic relationships. Riding it hurt my back.

I am sticking with my R1200RTW which does not have those problems. I no longer own a G310GS.

I am departing this forum, so I will not be able to respond to any posts on it.
