03 gt,
One on the best bikes I have ever owned, actually wish I still had it. Comfortable for touring, and great in the twisties.

Re: K1200gt

The only down side to the 03 GT if it matters to you is the lunch box sized pannier on the left due to the upswept exhaust. Other than that they are a great piece of kit.

Re: K1200gt

I purchased my 03 gt October of 07. Have loved every minute of it.

I have done several 500 mile weekends on it.

I keep extending my range, working up to the 1000 mile range.

So far so good.

I guess "great" is a relative term. The old skool GT is a bit heavy in the twisties, if you ask me. But, they look spectactular. And their performance isn't crappy.

If I were a rich man, I'd own one along with my newer GT. In NIGHT BLACK please.
