The GSA I rode was just right for my height and I have wanted one for years, however I am soon gonna be 4+ hours from nearest dealer and after 3 months I have cooled off to the idea and $24k tag. That being said I am going to ride the Yamaha for grins, and I will be busy moving soon so I may or may not wait on another GSA. D.
I would not let distance to the dealer influence my decision. The boxer is so easy to work on and maintain that I would do it myself even if the dealer was next door.
Now, as for the $24K price tag? That's another story, the ending which only you know.
