If you are interested, I posted a small report of a test ride I went on with the R1200GS...

Although you said the R1200GT... Unless that is a UK specific bike, the GT over here is a K1200...

The "Adventure" is the R1200GSA, here...

Really, if you've got a Strom, there's no real reason to switch bikes - I don't think it's worth the extra money.

I've ridden one a lot, since a co-worker has one. Or to put it properly, I've ridden it as much as I want. Another co-worker has a 1200Rs - he's about to buy a Wee-Strom.

How about the Montauk?

I rode a BMW at work for several years. It was an RT but the running gear is the same and I can tell you I never worry if my Strom is going to start and run when I throw my leg over. You never knew with the BMW. There was always SOMETHING going on with them. Great police bike, not so great civilian bike.

I can buy Suzuki parts and get Suzuki service a LOT cheaper than the BMW. The Suzuki network is a lot bigger too. If I'm in BFE I can usually find someone who can fix my bike if I can't do it myself.

I can buy 2 Stroms and have change left over or I can buy 1 GS.

Need I say more? Save your money. The only advantage I saw was the BMW brakes. NO ONE makes a better system.

Quite understandable - "the grass is always greener" as the saying goes. That was why I took the test ride - I wanted to find out if the grass really was greener - it turned out to be astroturf!

Bruce,

Read your report and it's all I need. I'm sticking to my V (what came over me) :D
