I'll probably get the side wings to help with winter riding as the LT has me spoiled in cold weather.
Karens came in UI'm going there today top pic them up and get them opn as the temps are dropping quick up here!
Speaking of riding, if you're around next weekend let's try to hook up on Sunday for a ride. I put a couple of hundred miles on the GS this past Saturday up in your neck of the woods. Rode up with Darcy Bastos who's also on this forum. He had an LT but now rides a K1200S.
I don't think we will be around, last weekend of the mileage contest ya know and Steve is going to beat me if I don;t get about 5000 more miles this week!
Sounds like Karen's putting on the miles - NJ and FL and the bike's not even 2 months old.
I've been averaging 45 miles per gallon out of the GS which is about 5 more than I got out of the LT. That's in mixed riding (commuting on side streets, some GA400, some North GA mountain roads, etc). No complaints here. However, what I'm saving on gas I'm spending on oil! She drinks more oil than gas.
See you around,
bwhahahahah wait till you run Higway sppeds for any distance, the mileage drops drastically! 170 -180 miles and it's empty! i ran her to taking 5.3 gl of gas a couple times (she misses her fuel cell and the 6.6 gl tank on the RT)
thebike has 4600 miles on it when we got back this weekend, plus she has been riding to work, Today was some deal going on, if you rode a bicylce or car pooled you get some gift, well she wrote them and said what about motorcycles since they are well better than double the mileage than a normal automobile , so she is making a point riding her bike today <g>
