I still think the 1100/1150 GS's are a tougher breed than the newer ones.
I was dead set on buying a S10 summer before last as soon as they got one at Bill's. Even had dibs on the first one they were going to get. But I stumbled upon this 2005 GS with 13,000 miles on it for $7,000 less than a new S10 was going to run me. Figured I'd take a chance.
I love this bike and for that amount I have a lot of room to fix a few snafu's. Overall I do not regret it one bit. I figure I can get a lot of miles from this bike and come out money ahead in the long run. I really like the way it rides. Plus it give time to watch the S10 and let Yamaha tweak the newness. And later maybe I can stumble on a good used one for less $$$
