Got a KGT Today!!!

Picked up a new Apple Red KGT today - wow what a machine!!!

Goes from truddling along to Godzilla in a twist of the wrist.

I had a wonderful RT, but needed to part with it to close the deal - would have loved to kept both but couldn't

Anyway wanted to stop lurking and help participate or contrubute.

BTW to Max BMW for working an awesome deal and repalcing my switchgear before leaving - what is up with the UJM turn signal - gotta relearn everything!!

Now let the farkeling begin..............

2008 RT Biarritz Blue (mine - sold)
2005 ST Piedmont Red/Light Magnesium (hers)

David - nice work!

I like the XM antenna mount - I was wondering where I was going to put?

BTW what GPS mount do you have the BMW one or someone elses.

I too was looking at some level of tank protection.

Again nice work

Instructions for that XM mounting setup can be found in the Hall of Wisdom on this site.

The switch on the left panel is for the Motolights.

Actually the CGM is the fast one, the dark ones have to fad to this color before they become fast. If you had the CGM, it would be fast right away.

Ya know, I used to think that way....

Tragedy is the CGM is fastest to the shop, falls over the most, springs leaks (gas) on a whim, and seems to reside in the shop a lot longer getting bumped by cop bikes <damhik! >.

Probably why they quit making them.

The red 1300 is sort'a nice as you can find them a lot easier when they blow connecting rod chunks out on the freeway - or the cheesy Chinese switchgear goes east.

Seriously, enjoy the new ride!

Welcome, Nice ride! you can get a factory gps moun to mount the gps in that spot for around $30. I think i paid $22 for mine discounted. works good.

But before you dig too deep LOCK UP DA WALLET AND CC.....


good luck and safe riding, esp in MA! i've seen the way they drive there and driven there.

Ride Safe!
