I've been away for years, sold my Vtx 1800 and bought used bmw 1200 gs. After some time, really missed my vtx, so I just bought it back from my son who was not using it much. All the cool stuff of the gs, tech stuff like canceling blinkers, heated grips, air pressure sensor, temp, oil change indicator etc. didn't compare with the FEEL of cruising, whether 45 mph or 85. I wonder if it is torque that I am talking about? The gs is just as fast, but different type of speed. No pushing you back at acceleration on gs. Anyway, I moved from Florida to Tucson AZ and have the shipper to deliver it about 09/04. Really happy about it. Anyone experience this?
