Gtl Vs Wing

The GTL kicks some arse!

This was taken out our local dragstrip with the GTL that is for Demo at Pandora's in Chattanooga, many saw this bike at Irohorse this past weekend.

Re: Gtl Vs Wing

Well-done video. However, it is an apples-to-oranges contest given the difference in horsepower. Maybe they should do a contest involving a 2-up Ironman and see who can still walk when they get off the bike.

Re: Gtl Vs Wing

Very cool to see from all the various camera angles.

The GTL is also shown in Killboy's highlights this week. Very, very nice.

I have done some long days on my GTL and can still walk after the end of the day. PLUS, I feel like I've actually ridden a motorcycle too!

00 K1200LT (Emil) 94,840 trouble free miles. Gone, but not forgotten
02 R1150RT (Artie) 109,000 miles. Favorite bike. With me to the end.
10 K1300GT (The Phantom) 10,110 miles. Like flying a T-38 on 2 wheels. Gone.
12 K1600GTL (Johnny 5) 3,500. A great compromise between the LT and GT

A gaggle of Japanese bikes, then I woke up.

Re: Gtl Vs Wing

How do you compare a Porsche to a mini van.

Re: Gtl Vs Wing

Depends who is driving the Porsche and who is driving the mini van. Some would have you believe this is a valid comparison and others not.......

Re: Gtl Vs Wing

Pandora's in Chattanooga will now be the local Gerbing Dealer for the area, they said within about two (2) weeks or so they should have some heated gear in stock.
