I own both and the difference is minimal. No reason to pass on a nice oilhead.

GS or GSA are easy to work on; except clutch replacements are labor intensive.

Some riders don't like the servo assist brakes from the 04-06 bikes - I don't mind them (mine have never failed). Servo brake flushes are also time-consuming.

One of the best commuter and two-up bikes you may ever own.
