Honda Varadero vs. BMW R1150GS
Same problem. :)
I have a beautiful Varadero (2006 with FI and only ABS) with perfect condition. Odometer: 64000 km (40000 miles).
The Dero is a gorgeous bike, reliable, powerful but boring (IMO) and so heavy. The bike is fit for me (I am 6'7 tall) but it is doing like a pig in heavy traffic (slow speed). And the Vara has poor running gear.
The problem is I like the flat twin too.
I am thinking of exchange my Honda with a ten years old R1150GS with perfect condition (ODO: 49000 km ~ 30600 miles). My friend's bike with verifiable past.
Like adi.barda: "My brain says: stay with the Varadero, my stomach screams go for the GS". :)
