I live in Sweden and I am in Sweden rightnow, the 990 is in California which is located in the USA a good 12 hrs flying time from Sweden.
Any way the GSA has 25 k miles and NO issuses.
HAving both is like having a nice hausfrau and a freundin( housewife and girlfriend.
One for every mood
I have to confess that I've had a quarter dozen Harleys
The last one was turbocharged though

Some technician told me he found it in my exhaust! Luckily I had 10 days left before the end of BMW warranty and I got covered in full. However, after 2-3 k miles the final drive started acting up I fixed the damn thing and trade it in with my 2009 then new 990...NEVER LOOKED BACK...guys that (want to) know how to ride would never pick the BMW over the KTM, even on tarmac the KTM feels so lighter that's offensive...FYI I had also a 2005 1200gs before the GSA and wasn't happy either with the built quality. For example panniers would fly if you hit a pothole hard enough...changed about three of them under warranty. Simply unacceptable for a bike that costs 13000€ + new ....
I wish I had bought a GSA a long time ago
and now I drink Orange Crush as well, double up now, a 990Adv and a 950 SER
