I joined a cult (got my GT today!!!)

Called the dealership this morning right when they opened. "You still got that silver one on the floor?" "Yes we do," they tell me. "Okey dokey, I'll be right there."

Rode it off the lot with 39 miles on it. Everything on it except the alarm (I think )

Already scheduled my 600 mile service, that won't take long. Thank goodness we've got thunderstorms rolling all afternoon, I can curl up with the owner's manual.

Here's a pic of me in my helmet - What a silly grin.

Welcome to the club. Don't let them forget to do the final drive oil at your service. Enjoy the ride.

If you saw the planes I fly for work you might think the handle works out fine still.

The flying milk stool? Yeah, spent some time in 'em. It is a brick but has killer performance. 4 peeps, half tanks and you're off 1/4 mile grass strip in the summer! Fun little bird. Friend's of mine had one I got to know.
