It would be nice to stop and not worry about gas fill ups.
I agree about time for breaks but in the 12,000 miles of my GS ownership I've come very close to running out of gas several times......gas stations are few and far between on back roads in the western U.S. But having said that, I still prefer my bike over a GSA's massive tank...just wish it got slightly better mileage or had a slightly bigger tank.
