The 650 gs would be better for me down here as a daily driver, as always your guys thoughts are greatly appreciated

I don't think hp has a lot to do with winning. I also wouldn't buy a bike just for this race but thats me.

I've ridden a 650 gs and it's not me. Way different feel from a 990.

The gs would probably make the most sense as a daily driver and are very reliable. Fortunately I have never bought a bike using common sense as the primary motivation. The bikes I enjoy the most are the inverse of that statement
