Wouldn't an ?-RT. Connie, FJR make more sense, if all you are going to do is ride on sealed back roads to pubs/coffee shops?

Been a few places riding with an RT and apart from the ring puckering moments where lack of suspension travel meets erosion rut that wasn't seen in time, it's not a problem.

Unfortunately in OZ it gets a bit hot behind all that tupperware in Summer. Maybe BMW can release a bike that has push button Tupperware ejection.

As for 130HP. Keep that for the Tourers, I think a detuned Lower down torque version would make more sense on a GS. Maybe the 130HP won't be the GS/A variant at all. They may just decide to go for some range. It's all a trick I tell ya.
Sorry guys but I have owned them all and the GSA is the best touring bike IMHO and can carry more stuff than even an LT.
