Just traded my 06 GT 32000 miles of perfect riding - for a 09 R1200GS SE - have always wanted to try one and I was made an offer I couldn't refuse.
I pick the GS up on Monday -
Just been looking at the GT in the garage and wondering ""what have I done"" ??????
Last time I had the GT in the shop for service they gave me a GS for the day. Told me to just ride it as much as I wanted to and enjoy. So I did. Spent several hours on everything from dirt to interstate. The first thing I noticed was how much the vibrations from the boxer were present again.....funny how almost 10 years on my old RT seemed to just make those vibrations melt away.....but a couple of years on the GT sure makes them noticeable again. The other thing was comfort and power. While the GS definitely has some good torque and will get up and go....it ain't no GT!
If finances ever dictate having 2 bikes, the other in the garage with out question will be a GSA. However when only 1 will do I have zero regrets with the GT.
