Hi guys!

New member here. Had a tough day, but after a 50 mile ride after work, all is good!
Dad had open heart and a valve replacement (with a pigs valve no less!) today. He was sposta be in th O.R. at 7 AM, but didn't get in til 11Am.

After the ride , what a stress buster! I admired my GT lines in the garage with a few darks, and thought Life is good!

Is it ok to have a GT and be on this site?

Welcome Mark. GT's are ok. It is considered a luxury touring bike in my book. Hope your Dad is ok. Getting out and riding is certainly a good stress reliever as you stated.

Ya know, a LT has been on my mind, but not riding two up, the GT is very cool!

Oh Oh ---- it always starts "with a thought" and then a "it's been on my mind" and then-------"I never thought I would"-------

Please don't take one for a test drive if you don't want this problem intensifying

I did take an 05 out last fall during open house and was not disappointed!
Could I get the auto centerstand as aftermarket on the GT?

Love the GT, so are you really considering an LT?

Just Go

Lets see, new member, pops has an operation, and you ride a GT???? Nope you can not be here. Just kidding.

Hope pops is ok. Let the stress out here. Great place and in fact, tonight having a great time here. Been posting for about two hours.

GT, maybe will get you to switch. Just kidding again.

The old guy is doing great, they told him he might be home Thurs, but Fri is more realistic.

Nahas, only if you buy, the LT, I'll get lunch!



"GT, maybe will get you to switch. Just kidding again."


motorman587, get Nahas to buy the LT for me, and I'll keep the GT for squirting 'round town!
