I bought a 2004 1150GS a little over a year ago, been riding about 1000 miles per month. What I love most about it is that I can ride 12 hours a day with occasional breaks and be comfortable. The main thing I don't like is that it feels heavy to me, but overall I love the bike. Gotta say I loved test riding the F650GS today. The model I rode had the short windscreen which I'd change for a large one, and the seat was terrible. After only a 30 minute test ride I was feeling the seat. But I'm sure a Corbin or other after-market seat would fix that. I loved the smooth torque curve. As strange as it sounds, it felt faster than my 1150GS. With the system cases, tax/tag/title, out the door it was a bit under $15k without doing any negotiating. As much as I love the bike I don't think I can justify spending that much (~$14k - ~$8k to sell my bike) just to "upgrade" from my 1150 to it. Too bad they only released the twin in 2008, even the used ones are fairly new and expensive still. Give me another 12-18 months and I'll be a convert from GSpot to Beasts, see y'all then!
