I tried a set of mayers, still sliding forward, my "boys" were not happy being that intimate with the tank!
Next up, a long painfull ride to Russell, and altho they did a supreme job, I was now sitting on top of my GT, not in it, and the boys were still sliding forward at times.(especially while braking)
Then I ordered the new style low seat, while that took care of the sliding issue, but my knees and thighs said get us off now. I thought about lowering the pegs, ect. ect. Where do you stop.?
Grif, I know how advanced the GT is, thats why I bought it. I have never been on a ride so powerful. Trouble is, after an hour or so I am looking for a place to rest for awhile, all that technology (and well done at that in my opinion), and my body says, hey bud are you listeneing to us?
I thought about waiting for the new LT with the new six cylinder motor and all, but from what I hear it is only going to be a hundred pounds lighter, with an increase in HP and torque. The current LT has plenty of both for me. Call me simple.
Lastly, I have a loving wife who loves to ride with me, and after several attemps on the GT she flat stated her head felt like it was a ragdoll from all the buffeting. Even after trying a couple different shields. She told me she wasn't getting back on the GT. Idaho is too pretty of a state to see by myself without her.
From what I am being told (sold) the 2009 LT has been refined and is at the top of its engineering curve with alot of hte earlier issues resolved. Reliabilty is a priority for me and I.ve been told the FD failures were from overloading the LT in most cases?
