well everything tempts me , but for now with the R1200 gsa and the r1200gs we are waiting till next year to think about buying any more bikes.

But I see it as a replacement to the 1200, which leaves tank size and alt power as a downside to it at this point.

I like the simplicity of it, I would really have to get used to filling it off the bike though, I rarely get off my bike at a gas station, it looks fun and bet it is much better off road for a half old goat like me, gas mileage makes it tempting, I cant wait to hear real numbers from riders that ride like we do, to go from mid/low 30's to say mid/high 50's would be awesome with the gas prices like they are! when you are paying a combined 8 bucks a gallon every gas stop it gets pricey real quick (we are filling two bikes up when we ride)
