As much as I love it I'm debating swapping my trusty Bandit for something a bit more winter friendly/sensible and I'm have to say, with my tin hat firmly on, I really don't like the GS1200. I took a new one out a couple of weeks ago and underwhelmed is the best I can say. If I do it it's looking like a choice between these two at the moment. What do we think? Does anyone have either one? I won't be towing/carrying it with the motorhome so that's not an issue. I also don't want anything with a smaller engine or physically smaller.
