Finally got it

Finally pre order number 1031 made it from the factory and dfeliverd today.
This a blue one with hi seat. Traded my 2000 K1200LTC with 93k miles.
We have ridden many miles, but time for a new dance partner.

Left my dealer about 2 PM and put on 150 miles. While I taked several dealer test rides, its different when it your bike. The hi seat seems to help but need a longer day to fully determine if its a keeper. Windshield seem better than I remember but time will tell on this too.
I was surprised that the riding with ear plugs I could hear the radio speakers OK.

Re: Finally got it

Congratulations guys. It sounds like this shipload should fill the last of the preorders. I hope you folks get some fine riding in before the weather gets ugly. Or plan on heading down here, the best part of the riding season is just starting for us

Re: Finally got it

Wow...let me know if you are cruising up the east side and I will tag along to get a first hand look at a real GTL in person other than sitting in the parking lot.

regards,
Dan
