How does the bike compare to the Watercooled GS? I'm well aware of the equipment differences and fuel range. I'm looking for how it feels compared to the GS. It is noticeably more top heavy? I don't think there will be a demo to ride for another month.
My '13 GSW is very agile and feels much lighter than it is.
i think you feel the added weight at stop, backing and getting it on the stand but once underway you don't notice. the new GSA is incredibly balanced IMO. Have a standard 08 GS, demo'ed a GSW and glad i waited on the GSAW
