can't stand the GSA. That's the loaner I get whenever my S1K gets serviced, and it just feels far too big for me to control. Maybe if I rode it every day I'd get used to it, but I'm not a fan of the Boxer twin feel either.
It's not the worst bike in the world, but I usually ride my S1K and find it to be a near do-it-all bike. Literally, the only thing it can't do as a daily rider is do shopping/grocery runs (for which I take my Ducati or drive my Audi).
