Nice... of course to increase the off-road suitability I still think it needs to be at least another 100lbs lighter. I had an old 1150GS that was a great bike, but off-road it lacked a bit due to the weight. That was particularly bothersome when it went down... and it was a case of when, not if.

On the bright side, a new GS probably means a new Ewan and Charlie marketing video^H^H^H^H^H^H travel series...
