Thumbs up Back from Trip

Just got back from our "big" trip on the 08 GT. Two-up trip through bits of the SE US, about 1800 miles in all. Not huge by the standards of some of the folks on here, but a big ride for us.

Just wanted to say that the bike performed flawlessly in sometimes difficult conditions. Definitely the right tool for the job!

There are various complaints and issues on here, as on many "marque specific" boards. And certainly many are justified. But just wanted to report that I bought the bike specifically for this kind of thing, and it worked as expected.

I look forward to more, unfortunately, work only lets me out so often (and they help to pay for things like BMW bikes), so it's back to "weekend" trips for a while.

Yes, I know some of you ride that far in a weekend, but I'm not that tough!

I also rode this weekend, a whole 0.004734848485 miles (~25 feet) so the tree trimmer could get his crane-picker hauler truck in the driveway.

Wore me out! And the damn seat hurt too!

Least it didn't stall. Didn't spit gas out on the ground, nor exhibit any high-idle stuff so that was good too. Didn't even manage to knock it over either!
