660 or 1200gsa,two bikes at opposite ends of the adv bike market.
if i were to only have one bike i would have to choose the gsa (thumbs)
unfortunately i cannot reach the floor on either bike :laugh:
so i would stick with my standard 1200gs ;)
i couldnt really see myself doing tours loaded up with my wife on the pillion on a 660.
a bike for solo touring/green laning.
the sensible option would be to buy used and have both :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

S10 for me, Luv mine to bits but the 660 Ten is a close second and the bike I use for winter commuting, I'm a lucky git to own both Tenere models.

I had a Tenere 660 that was great for back road riding...but I never got on with it off-road...however that's probably because I'm too used to my KTM450EXC.

Most likely due to the fact you never fitted off road tyres and stand five foot two (in high heels :) )
