Gaan vir die GS. Het n trip tot in London gedoen op gewone GS, met Touratech panniers. Jy kan basies alles met n GS doen wat jy met GS Adventure kan doen. Die enigste voordeel is die groter brandstof tenk van die Adventure. Adventure is n groot swaar lomp bike, wat net vir grondpaaie en gerieflike toer goed is. Enige heavy off road gaan dit maar knetter op die adventure

Thanks Guys for all the input.  Ek dink ek hoor wat ek graag wil hoor GSA.  Im planning on doing a lot of touring with my wife on the back. Ek het al twee Dakars en een 800GS gehad en weet ek sal myself limit op sekere gebiede met 'n GSA maar soek nou 'n lekker toerfiets met genoeg plek vir die Kitchen sink. :thumleft:
Congrats Mello Yello on your new purchase ! The GSA sounds perfect for what you want to do, and may you have many happy miles on it  :thumleft:

ENJOY the GSA.
I have absolutely NO problem with my GS, load , height etc is all magic. Just the range.

Does anyone know if a GSA tank will fit onto a GS ??

Enjoy the GSA. (you cant currently upgrade to anything better) :thumleft: :thumleft:

AFAIK, you need the tank complete with ALL the innards to do a straight swap (fuel pump, fuel gauge sensor, etc.)

I converted Pistol's 1200GS to a GSA tank, no major issues except getting the fuel guage to show accurately, we're still working on that.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!
