Which one, GS or GSA?
OK, so I'm a long time motorcyclist and I recently purchased a K1600B. Really nice bike and the motor is phenomenal, but after taking it on a long trip to the Rockies, I just did not enjoy it as much as I thought i would.
Short of it is, a friend recently purchased a R1205GSA and he was on the same trip, we swapped bikes for an afternoon and I was like Wow, this thing is nice! It rides great, handles great and just felt great. I never liked the looks of the GS bikes, but I did enjoy riding the 1250 GSA in the Rockies.
Anyway, I was looking at a GS at he dealer today and I know it has been sitting on the sales floor for at least a couple of months if not longer and I know they have incentive to move it. However, My buddy is telling me I really should consider the GSA. He test rode both a GS and the GSA before purchasing his and said the GSA rides a bit better and just felt more stable to him, plus it has all the additional features over the GS. So my question for those that own a GS or GSA and particularly those that have experience on both: GS or GSA and why?
