Exclamation Houston . . . we have lift off.

This morning, whilst in a hurry to get over by the lake to take some pics, I found out something new about the GT. The front wheel does come off the ground in 1st . . . 2nd . . . and 3rd gear. Holy Kay-WRAP!!! This bike is amazing!

No, I won't be making wheelies a part of my everyday riding style. But it is something to watch for. In first gear it happened quite by accident...honest! But once that happened, I had to see what she'd do. Looks out kids! She's a runner!

That would be a big hurry...

Really enjoying hearing about how much you like the GT. Saw a Blue one when I was at Bentonville BMW a couple weeks ago - very nice looking.

Windshield pics look good - better than I thought they would...

Keep the stories coming!

Oops. I forgot to tell you that. I hope it's not a problem.

Somehow I had a feeling that you already knew this "issue".

And you can bet your bottom dollar that BMW isn't working on a fix for it
