I have no intention of pretending to be Ewan McBoorman. I ride 30,000 miles a year and I need a comfortable bike that's fun to rip through corners. The GS/A fits that bill as well as anything for the moment.

The K60 was freaking awful on-pavement, and everyone on a GS/A spends more time on-pavement than off. If you're happy with the K60's level of on-road performance, then I'm happy for you. A well-ridden Burgman will run rings around a GS/A with K60s on it.
