Nice bike!! Best color too . Those GT's are starting to grow on me. If I didn't have a disc problem in my neck, they would grow faster. I guess I'll just wait until the new LT comes out . Or, maybe not, I may have to ignore the disc problem .

I'm sure it's a great ride, and you will enjoy it.

Well guys...there aren't gonna be ANY farkles on this one. I've decided that it's working and looking great as it is... NO Farkles.

Oh, except the HID I added last night...

Uhhh...and the seat I'll add this morning...

Oh No... Oh No... It's starting all over again! I've got Farkle-itis!!!!!!

The first step is admitting you have a problem. So far, I have not.

At the risk of enabling, the GT can be made just as sit-up comfortable as the LT. The Suburban Machinery Bar Backs add an inch rearward and 3/4" height. The new Aeroflow windshield brings a smooth pocket of air for rider and passenger. And the Verholen peg extenders with the seat in the high position actually gives slightly more leg room than the LT, though at the cost of some reduced lean angle.

Just trying to help here.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I don't, but my wife does. I have to get a taller, aftermarket shield for the GT and she'll be fine. As for me, I absolutely love the GT. It gets better with every ride.

In the case of Farkles, is it ok to give in to the force? I say give in, you will feel much better.

Man...that theological system sure has it's advantages at times! You guys get to blame everything on God...or at least His Divine decrees!

And no...I am not Armenian!

Good one! But, truth is, almost everyone has their own religion, whether systematized or not.
