Still waiting for my new MTS with diminishing patience.
I think you will find it difficult to ride the GS for a while, and will be very pleased with just how good a touring bike the MTS really is. Between the aircooled GS and the Multi, for me it's the Multi that holds the advantage in balance. The new BMW will be interesting to compare, and represents more of a sea change than the new MTS, but there's no doubt the last years of the air/oil GS have been very satisfying for owners who have their priorities aligned with the bike's.
