I have 2 bikes. A 2008 GT and a 2009 GS/Adventure. They are night and day, but each has it's own charm.
I love the GT for fast highway work and canyon carving. The power is addictive. It looks great.
The GS/Adventure is just plain easy to ride, feels remarkably light on it's feet even with 500lbs +. I like that everything is out there exposed. It is a joy to ride anywhere. I loaded it up with adventure gear but mostly use it on the road. It carries all my camping gear but I usually stay in motels.
I pay for both bikes garage, maintenance and insurance and wonder if I should keep two of them, but I would be hard pressed to sell either one.....
