Hi Jetpilot. I remember you from I-BMW..

I felt the same after owning a GSA for awhile. Sold my K12S, bought a GSA and loved it. Just a great bike. Finances willing, I'll own another one day. Back on a K1300S now, because the GSA was just a little too tall and too...I guess, tame. For some reason, those K's either get under your skin, or they don't. I'm happy for the foreseeable future, but I love all bikes, so I'm not immune to the "next bike" affliction, by any means.

Still need to get together for a ride one of these days. Maybe when it drops below 100...
