I just traded in my LT for a GS. I know I know- thatsjust weird.

I was wondering why no GS talk or information on this forum?

Thanks

Tony

You can sport tour on a GS? Who'da thunk it? Pretty sure we don't have any members with GS's here.

Yeah, you really should look at ADVrider.com for GS threads. Off-road don't work so good for these guys. Just ask Jan. rofl

My apologies. Didn't mean to be mean. ( Maybe it's the Bama loss coming out in me. How do I say Go Frogs & mean it? grin )

As for your ride, I totally would have encouraged The Wife to keep riding. But that's just me.

I think I read a thread about riding a GS a few years back.

No, you don't have to, but only if you can't deal with smokin' the RT's in the twisties. And then there's the K bikes. They can be had, too. Just ask 2bmwfan.

i have seen alot of post involving GS riders and i see alot of them in signature lines....i think that the GS fit the "sport tourer" catagory overall. But i also think that the GS opens up the Adventure Tourer catagory. Leaving us LOWLY R/Rs/RT and maybe GT/ST/S guys in need of a website like this one....

Go AWAY GS/GSA owners before i turn green with envy....;)
