I imagine it just changes the throttle mapping. You still have all the power available, but you probably have to twist the throttle a lot further to get it. This allows you to have more subtle...

Wire wheels weigh more too. As a former AC 1200GS owner I always thought of the GSA as being really heavy but it really isn't, at least not after you add all the same crap to a GS. This is cool....

This is a really good point. If it is things like fuel, crash bars and spoked wheels (hell I had those on my '06 GS) the bike might not weigh that much more than a loaded LC GS. I also can't see...

Weight vs. normal GS

I've sold my '06 12GS in anticipation of getting a '14 but now I'm wondering if I should get a '14 GSA. The weight is about 50 lbs more. Anybody have a sense of how much this is due to the crash bars...

GS and something else of course.

I have an '06 R1200GS. I want to add the new WR250R. If I had more dirt experience I imagine the WR would be the TE610.

38mpg commuting

I only get 38mpg most days going back and forth to work. I'll get 42 hwy on a long ride. I don't baby it though, but I can't imagine getting 50+mpg. I'd be able to go 300 miles on a tank!!

This is helpful.

I've had brake warnings before but they were due to my pads being worn too much in the rear. I know now to also look at my FD if I get it again.
