K1200GT has an accurate speedo

Got the GPS wired up and did some testing. While my initial estimate was about 5% off, after some testing I'm thinking it's closer to 1-2%. I had a GPS indicated speed of 75MPH and the speedo looked like it was just a RCH above the 75MPH mark. At 50MPH on the GPS, it looked dead on. At 90MPH on the GPS it looked like it was a needle or two width above 90MPH. So all in all, the speedo on the GT is pretty much spot on.

Nah, the GT's speedo is easy to read.

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...
