I got a GTL as well!

Since today I am the proud owner of a brand new 0 km GTL (well, 23 when I got home). Picture is here below. See if you can spot why my GTL is so special

Picked mine up on Friday and had 88 miles when I got home. Left the following Sunday and got home the next Thursday with 1682 miles. I love it and the Ozark mountains!!!

Hey, you spotted it! I got her painted black. Just like my LT was. It looks the dog's bollocks in black. I find it surprising that you can only get the bike in two (horrible) colours...

But mine is black! The single one in the world! Mwuhahahaha!!!!

Don't hesitate to share a picture of the bike taken on a sunny day.

Re: I got a GTL as well!

Nice!

Been thinking of having mine painted white or red. I don't like the factory blue.

Re: I got a GTL as well!

Looks good... Too bad about the color though! :-)

and you think you like it now, just wait till you have a few 1,000 miles on her...

You'll really like her then. She has a way of growing on you... Watch the speed ! She really likes to run..

About the color: I have a unique GTL: she's black. Nobody else has one. And it's a 1000 times better looking than the stock blue and inifinitly better looking than the gray one. I'll put up some pics of the bike in the sun so you can compare better.

Now that I have done 1200 kms, she indeed grows. Takes a little while to get used to the clutch, so you don't look like a d*ck revving her up to 5000 RPM when you try to get her moving. The throttle is soooo much smoother than the LT, and so is the clutch for that matter.
