Im stil waiting, so cant help.
There is a few Gs 1250 at Dealers looking for owners.
The GSA was only supposed to be launched in October.
They then launched it now, without any stock in SA >:D
Each Dealer got about two GSA bikes before the launch, they are sold long time ago.

I was told the shipment will be here 6 February. It has now been moved to a new date and nobody knows when  :'(

Review I saw showed a big performance improvement, especially at low rpm. I like it.

But new 1290 will be interesting

A few years ago I thought I did the right thing and changed from BMW boxer to 1190R. I wanted something more offroad orientated. Big mistake....for me. when I dropped it in river crossings I was unable to lift it. the BM is liftable. then my driving style for 15 years has been, stand up ,look up, open up. I felt totally incompetent on the 1190. I am back on a boxer!! Love forest roads and fire breaks, love mountain passes even on tar. I ride Magoebaskloof every Wednesday to Rotary.  Best bike for me and I do not want for the new model.

I think it's dealer dependant. 

I paid more than the minimum they asked coz I'm not financing.
