In my opinion the GSA is more stable at low speed. This make offroad riding easier (not talking technical stuff here).
Much more comfortable.
More value for money in the purchase price.

Airing the tyres down makes the print LONGER more than wider. This is the main effect of increasing the footprint. You therefore dont see any big difference in the tracks in the road.

The thing is though, that if you pre-load the shifter, as you come off the gas it changes instantly. You cant shift anywhere but the next gear, so what do you mean by "mess up"?
