    I thought you'd opted for a KTM Nutty ?

    It's not unmanageable at the moment, but pushing it around can be hard work at times. While I have a back condition (which doctors are still no closer to fixing), I need to be sensible and look after my back.

    The GSA is a truly brilliant bike, the best in its class, and probably the best bike I've ever owned (alongside the XR. I can't make my mind up, but we won't go into all that on here!).

    When my health issues are eventually sorted, I'll be ordering another GSA, no question about it.

    I've got a Super Adventure R on order, but now that I'm getting the Rallye, will probably change my order to the more road focussed 1290 S, subject to the test ride at the weekend.

    Thought you said it was flawed, one of the reasons for getting rid ???


    Best bike you've owned ? Did it even have its first 600 mile service ?

    Agreed FAT GS vs Slim GS.

    Fine if you need 300 mile tank range. 10kg more fuel to carry around most of the time if you don't.

    I always assumed the GSA was to make you look slim...

    Well you know you are wrong on the basis that you have agreed, with the one person on here who is never right.

    I don't like all the scaffolding on the GSA, bigger fuel tank not needed and a GS is lighter and more nimble - as well as cheaper!

    So I bought a GS TE with spoked wheels and am very happy with it.

    Now that I've changed my order to a Rallye with Sport suspension, I'll have a lighter GSA with a smaller petrol tank. Should be the best of both worlds.
