I had a 2010 GS with ESA and loved it. I would ride with it in comfort on the slab up to the mountains. When I got to the forest service roads I would put it in off-road. When I came out of the woods...

Maybe sorted wasn't the best word. There were a number of improvements from the '13 to the '14 and more still on the '15. I guess I opened up a can of worms I didn't intend to.
