Why would you want to go to an S or an RSport? Doesn't the GT have enough power to weight or is there something else you think would be better with the others?
Half your luck riding around those roads. I have only driven a car around the the roads of southern NSW but it is awesome, even in a car. So different to WA where most roads are wide, pretty flat and pretty straight.
I did a nice ride with my wife from Perth to Beverly to York to Perth on Sunday. About 2.5 hours and 250km, some of which was quite winding for WA. Very strong cross winds pushed my body around a bit but the bike tracked beautifully. It was a great trip apart from sore butts after the first hour. The bike is brilliant on these rough bitumen secondary roads in WA, probably the best there is for such roads, with power to burn for overtaking in the short stretches available to pass cages and other bikes. Temp was in low 20's C and it was perfect biking weather, apart from the wind.
My bike was registered late October 2006 and I bought it second hand in late February with 1500km on the clock, at quite a saving from the new price. I have now done just over 6000km.
