New GTL Exclusive

Ok I finally bit the bullet and upgraded from my 2002 KTL. Love this bike, rides amazing and feels so much lighter, even though I know its not that much less weight. Now I have to take a few hours in the driveway and figure out all the electronics and get my helmet synced . I love the sound of this engine, I was sold as soon as I started it at the dealership. They kept it in the shop when it arrived so I could check it out before it went to the showroom, and it never made it to the showroom. Looking forward to lots of miles and smiles.

Positively orgasmic what an awesome looking machine and the right colour to. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do looking at her.

Uh, you know these were made to be ridden, not just to be looked at, right?

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...

Until I can afford one ( Which will probably be never) I'll take the next best thing. She is a beauty, think I'm turning green

Re: New GTL Exclusive

Nice bike. I recently got a used 13 GTL and it pulls slightly to the left. Was wondering if they fixed that on the 2014 models?

Re: New GTL Exclusive

I have a 2014 GTLE with about 600 miles so far; it does not pull to left. I put it on cruise, took my hands off the grips and it tracked straight.

Good for you! I hope yours is not the exception to the rule and that they really have fixed this issue.

Re: New GTL Exclusive

Got a 1000 on the odometer, and it pulls to the left. Will be interesting to see once I wear/change out tires if it still does it... Very weird to say the least.

Re: New GTL Exclusive

Congratulations. It really is a nice looking bike. Wait until you ride it without the trunk. You'll think it's a different bike. I just bought one and got around to taking the trunk off a couple weeks ago. It's still off! I tried it without the bags too. Could not really notice a difference with no bags. Enjoy your new bike!

Re: New GTL Exclusive

Thanks for all the well wishes. I love it and no pull to the left so far. I really feels so different than my LT.
