You will not find a better bike than the R1200GSA. I ride mine with the sport bikes on the twisties - usually fast enough to be near the front of the pack. I also ride off road quite a bit. It handles fine off road as well. Took a trip to Colorado from MO and at times was cruising at 110Mph through Kansas and when I got there traveled all over the state and even rode over 2 off road mountain passes in Colorado - Mosquito Pass and Monarch Pass. The perfect bike for just about everything.
