As much as I would like to have one, for the price of the new GS plus $5000 in bags, real skidplate, lights, windsheilds, saddles, footpegs, GPS, etc... I could get a one year old farkled Tenere/Tiger/F800GS, keep my DRZ400S, upgrade my boys PW50 to a KTM65, get me a nice used MX bike to ride the tracks with him AND have a bunch of money left over for farkles, gear, taxes, insurance, gas and tires!

Besides, I'm not famous for keeping bikes too long and depreciation stinks!
You know you want a shaft drive, however nice those other bikes are, shaft drive! And the new one is liquid cooled, no longer a rational for not getting a shaft drive! (I love my 2012 GS though).
