Is Two Too Many?

Trying to close a deal on a great 03GT, but need to sell my Harley first...see my post over in Classifieds...

Will my '98 Yellow Taxi "Chiquita"... pout if a newer GT comes into her territory? I hope she dosent go to the corners of the garage and mark her territory.

Is it silly to have two bikes this close in heritage?

I am sure someone will disagree, but I think if you have an RS, you have a GT. The differences never seemed to be that much to me.

Shame upon you, we GT riders are very much a separate breed

Why wouldn't you get something a little more different? Like a GS, LT, or a K1200S? Seems like you'd be having the same experience with both bikes.

Back in my Army days... They told me:

"This is my Rifle,
This is my Gun,
This is for Fighting,
This is for Fun."

The 98 is snappy, lighter, flickable, the Yellow makes it "fun", light-hearted...

The GT is more "stately" (?)- nah- not really, but "formal" in Dark Blue, dressy, more protected. Classy.

You can trade for the GT, but then it should be for the color or whatever cosmetic or build date reason not because you think it's a different bike.

Ain't nothin' wrong with havin' a 98 RS and a 03 GT.

Jealousy

The only time they'll get upset is when you start taking stuff from one and put it on the other. You know, like letting your girlfriend use your wife panties while her's are..............well use you're imagination but you see what I'm getting at...uh you do see don't you?
