I think this is my first post here. Thought I'd chime in, bought an 07 blue GT a few months ago, in Arkansas, rode it to Taos NM, seat was HORRIBLE, but I had a blast riding the GT anyway. Missed the comfort of my HD Road Glide, but, when the temperatures dropped and the twisty roads got wet, the BMW was the bike to be on. Put a Sargent seat on the bike, rode it to Baton Rouge LA, seat was better, but still not quite right. Anyway, to make a long story short, I find this bike hard to put a lot of miles on in the saddle, however, it is so addictive!!! I have three bikes in the garage, the GT, Glide and a HD Deuce. End result, putting the,,, drum roll, Glide up for sale. Can't part with the GT. I want to roll, it is the GT. The power, sucked me right into the dark side. The HD's are just collecting dust. For day trips, 50 miles here, 50 miles there, it is the cats meow. In fact, I find myself yearning now for a 2nd BMW, maybe a K1200S.
