A bit of a left field suggestion but a similar thing happened to a mate of mine and we worked out it was because he had his two keys together. They don't like that and can shut the electrics down!

Go with the GS and add a Hepco and Becker luggage plate and a Rotopac spare fuel canister. Looks good and will only cost you about $250.
