Meybe this has been asked before, if so, skuz me and direct me: I've got a '07 1200GSA, with Russel DL seat, Wilbers, Comm set, Zumo, Radar Det and more. Finally set up like I wanted it. Had ideas of me and the misses riding to Key West, Hill Country, Big Bend, etc, you get the idea. We did make one trip to the Hill Country and the bike was the best. Road a few good gravel roads and still good. Or so I thought... Well, the only problem is: My wife don't like long trips on the bike. She had rather ride for a day in the Ozarks down the NF roads and county roads. We've done this on the big Beemer, but once in a while, we get into trouble at a stream crossing, or the road peters out and we gotta turn that big beast around in a narrow rocky road. Or the going just gets a little ruff for the big pig. Though I love the GSA, it seams to be a over-kill for what we (she) likes to do. Now I do also have a 650 XCh, and we've road it 2 up a little, but its to the extreme the other direction, so.... I've been thinking about a 800GS (or possibly a 650GS) in the back of my mind. I know its not that much lighter than the GSA. But for what we want to do, it might be better suited for us. We (again she) just wants to poke around on the NF roads while carring a little gear, visiting old sites, creeks, cemetaries and such.... Though I hate to think about selling the GSA, not that I've got all the farkles on it and starting over. What does someone think that has ridden or owned both?? For this type of riding??? Or do I just have a bad case of the 'Greener grass' syndrome???
