Front Suspension and handlebars need work
I really love this bike!! That being said, I feel the bike should be equipped as any dual-purpose bike. Especially the front forks. I realize that each rider is different but I feel you can do a much better job in putting together a front suspension that would benefit the bike off-road and on.
Better springs etc.
The handlebars on this bike are really uniquely bad. They have shown to be physically bad for riders on long trips, such as extreme numbness at the base of the thumb. I believe this may be a result of the bars making a downward angle at the grips. Try a more dirt bike style with upright and straight grip areas.
You have proven that you can build a bike that will be in the same grouping as the BMW GS, now is the time to make it better by adding better features.
