    I see that you are from Hotlanta. No wonder you can ride all year, specially during the height of summer. Sorry but I do ride full gear all the time including a full face helmet.

    I've taken the course. You learn and drop your rental bike (1200 GS in my case) more than you can in 10 years of riding. It's a great course and eye opener. Highly recommended.

    Agreed. There's nowhere like West Coast and Rocky Mountains. Nowhere on the East Coast can't even hold a candle plus weather sucks during summer if you are riding ATGATT. BRP is a 45mph boring ride,...

    You are contradicting yourself. If you are "in the woods" as you say it you are in low speed stuff and GS beats the GSA hands down in slow speed off road conditions.
