A silver streak with a blue light following close behind! Definitely gets the heart to beat a little faster....

What time are you going to be at Lone Star? I might try to come by & say Howdy.

BTW your Harley buddies MAY want to ride with you but will not be able to keep up with you. :histerica

If you see a little green color on the faces of your Harley buddies don't worry, it's just a bad case of ENVY!!

Jimmy I was good meeting you today. Sorry I had to cut out so fast but work never stops this time of the year. Do not try to learn all the Audio & other stuff till you get use to the bike itself.

Mesh jacket...I really like the Olympia Airmesh 3 and recommend it. I bypassed the bluetooth setup and have an audiocom that will provide a wired connection. I figure I had wires for the LT since '03, and it worked fine for me, so going to stay with that. Just wish it would quit pouring rain down in buckets so I can ride tomorrow!

Thanks i needed someone to recommend a jacket that didn't cost 500.00 dollars, i actually looked at the Airmesh 3 i get that one prolly. The wired setup works well, i hope the bluetooth works as advertisted.

Olympia makes pretty good stuff I believe. Sizing is a bit on the "small" side, so best to try one on. I'm sure you're digging the bike pretty well. My dealer was a bit surprised when I showed up for the 600 maint. 36 hours after I bought the machine. My experiences with the LT and reluctance to get another BMW for various reasons were all forgotten once I jumped on the GTL (was looking at an Ultra Classic, but couldn't bring myself to go back to Harleys). Hope your expereinces with this machine are all good!
