Thank you for the responses guys. I think I'll do some reading in Beasts, Road Warriors, and Hacks as Cannonshot suggests.
Cool picture of the Victory Vision. I have had our Wing in some slop one up and it was not fun, the KLR 650 I had did much better. You have some big nads Rollin'.
Unfortunately, there is not a BMW dealer anywhere near us. The GSA we looked at was one from Craigslist. They don't seem to come up too often around here. Perhaps I could find an inmate with a regular GS here locally that I could look at (Edmond, OK).
Do you know if the seat is about the same from the GS 650, 800, and 1200? If it is, perhaps a 650 or 800 would be better. I really wish I could look at these in person a little more.
