Honestly, what I really want is a K1300RT.
But since they dont make one, I've had to make do with a GT.
The day I brought the GT home it got a Cee Bailey windshield (since replaced with the AeroFlow/AeroGard setup), Helibar risers (since replaced with Suburban Machinery risers), and Verholen peg extenders (since removed). The second day it got a Rocky Mayer custom seat, and then much later a Bakup backrest. Now it's 90% as comfortable as the LT is, but a lot lighter and so much quicker.
Other additions have been adding electronics (Lowrance gps x2, V1 radar detector, Baehr intercom, iPod hookup) and setting it up for LD riding (Big Mak tank bag, Custom Tankbags rally book, Warm-n-Safe dual heated controller, PHID driving lights, Samson fuel cell, two 3-liter water jugs).
I've done countless 1,000-mile days on it, plus a few 1,500-mile days, including one rally that was 8,000 miles in 7 days.
My biggest complaint (besides the @#$%&! final drive) is that it goes through tires rather quickly. Imagine that.
