I put 80k on a Wee Strom before the Girlie and I'd have to say they were close to being equal off-road. Tiger had the better suspension and the Wee seemed to carry its weight a bit lower. Both 19" front wheels and similar ground clearance. Tiger has the power edge.
The GS's really do feel like the weight is lower (all you have to do is sit on one), and the suspension is quite a bit better. All of this comes with a premium price.
