I had a loaner RS from Cycle Specialties in Modesto, for a couple days while I lived in the Central Valley of CA. and they did a recall on my GSA. It was a higher mile bike as are a lot of RS's I see advertised. Pros: typical tall geared BMW bike feel Pretty decent wind protection at speed Clearly a good BMW to have in the garage! I love some of the color combos they did on this bike. Kind of cool almost retro look compared to todays designs Cons: Alternately flashing ABS lights from low battery condition at startup common to these bikes (or R1200C's with servo ABS) My wrists hurt on a couple rides due to ergonomics. Would have to adapt myself a bit to this Frame/suspension felt a little loose/sloppy at low speed but clearly the bike is built to run at fast speeds and sport tour its tail off.
