New LC GSA

I have a 2011 GSA and was interested in the LC for these tough Texas/OK/NM/AZ HOT summers. Was told the GSA's are hitting their showroom in January.

Funny enough just back today from a 6,500 mile trip from Texas to Labrador and back. Only ran into heating in Boston stuck in traffic, temp. was 90 and humid....

Dudes,
I took the LC GS for a test ride today. Needless to say that it was awesome.
Those of you who have the premium model with the dynamic ESA, and drive modes, is it worth the extra moolah?
Thanks

LC 1200 GS problems ??

A friend bought a new LC 1200 GS with the full range of accessories.

Question: Has any new owners experiences problem?

My friend's bike has a bad vibration and rough running in 3rd and 4th gears. He noticed this when he first picked up the bike and had it checked out at the first service. Result, they all do that. Today he asked another rider to test ride the bike and give an opinion. This rider has ridden three different demonstrator bikes from three different shops as he is considering changing his 2013 1200 Gs.

In his opinion none of the demonstrator bikes showed any of the vibration or rough running that this bike does. In his opinion (and that of my friend) the problem appears to be in the gearbox. He went as far as to say that he is now reluctant to trade his bike in case he gets a bike with similar attributes.

I would appreciate any replies from riders with similar problems and how they were remedied.

I think you want this thread where issues, real and imagined, are discussed.

Ok chaps, thanks for the response. Next question: I currently have a 2012 RT, which I find to be an awesome bike, but a lot to live with, so to speak. It's heavy, and has a lot of plastic that I am always scared of scratching. I bought it thinking my wife would ride with me, and we would take long trips together. Yeah. That never happened. She pretty much hates being on any bike for more than an hour. It's either too hot, cold, wet, whatever. I spent a week on a 2010 GS in California. It was a revelation, lighter, easy to ride, comfy and it just seemed like it was more fun. Then I rode the LC GS, and it blew me away. I am this close from trading in the RT on the new GS, I even have the go ahead from the Missus and financially it's not a problem. (Will pay cash for the diff - yes I'm gonna lose a bit on the trade, it is what it is) Am I crazy for felling this way? I'd rather trade the RT now for a bike that suits me better before it has a ton of miles on it. Have any of you guys gone from an RT or K bike for similar reasons? And did you miss the extra wind protection? Any responses appreciated. Thanks guys.
