I don't fancy picking the GS up much and certainly won't be doing Stanage Edge or Chapel Gate on it (come to mention it I won't be rushing back to Chapel gate on my WR either!) but it doesn't feel that heavy riding it.

It sits quite happily at 100mph (on private roads and autobahns). It's unbelievably torquey. Good range on the 33 litre tank. So I'm pretty happy so far.

If we wanted to make life easy for ourselves we'd just stick to the tarmac wouldn't we? ;)

You won't regret owning an 1150GS (well except not getting the 1200 ;) ).
Cracking road bikes, especially on rough roads.
They will cope with dirt tracks a lot better than the riders, that's all.
Have fun. :)

I had a little off road expedition tonight (very easy track) and it was way better than I thought it would be.
