My GS (well, both 1100's and the 1200) were/are smooth as silk. Each to his own, but I can't imagine a bike I'd rather put long days on than my GS.

Here she be.

I don't see no scratches, how new is she?!

That is why I didn't open my mouth. That would have been 3 of us large guys saying the same thing. I love the looks of the bike. To bad ergos don't work for me.

For us 6+ footers, I think there is really only one choice for a comfortable long ride bike.

As I start to realize that I may have to do much more slab than dirt, I am now wishing I had picked up a GSA vice the GS. The extra 4 gallons is nice to have.

One of the (few) advantages to being a third of a foot under 6' tall.
