I used to have an 1150 gs and it was always great I rode until it had around 90,000 miles on it before it got hit by a car. To replace I upgraded to a beautiful 1150 gs adventure a couple years newer and with only 23,000 miles on it. It's a great bike. It seems to have more oomph then my slightly tired gs. However, I'm short, and I trimmed my sargent seat made it work but its still a lot to move around. The big tank is nice but usually I don't do the kind of riding where I need that much fuel. I love the metal cases, but I can get those on a gs as well. The other issue is comfort, despite my set up on the seat I'm ok driving it but it's not ideal, however my passenger who is with more than half of the time liked my GS so much more. I had a thread going that I should check out about comfort. A lot of people suggest switching to a gs seat on the adventure, but it seems if I don't need the adventure stuff why I don't just... Thoughts?
