Thanks for the push. I bought the GT

Thanks for all the positive feedback.

I picked up an '07 demo Monday, April 7. What a bike!!!!

It came with and/or I added the following:

Large top case
BMW tank bag
Zumo power cord
Zumo handle bar mount
Z-technik Vstream windscreen (the jury is still out on this)
Remus carbon fiber can
additional fuse block
Gerbing power cord
extended warranty

I'll be hitting the road in June riding to the "tail of the dragon", Chicago, SD, CO, Moab, the north rim of the Grand Canyon and back to MD. I can't wait to see how the GT handles the miles. I hope to get in a ride from MD to CT before this to make sure all the bugs are worked out. I look forward to meeting fellow GT riders on the road.

I'm thinking about adding:
xm antenna, traffic and weather service

Any other recommendations????

Yep, radar and GPS were the first things added to my GT. And if your bike didn't come with the factory HID then I'd say that's next.

Sounds like a great trip you have planned.

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...

Look for a good deal on the small top's great for running around town and short trips. I'd also recommend tankslapper protection and perhaps a headlight guard.

Congrats! You did not miss the right color

Intercom would be another useful thing. Along with motolights.

Take care!
