Back on the GT
Having spent the last 3 months and 7,500 miles on the new Multistrada, I decided it was time to pay some attention to the GT. Installed the cam chain jump guard (huge thanks to all who posted data and pix...made it a much easier and drama free install), and changed the oil since she has been sitting for several months. Took her out for a spin around some of the local canyons and I just wanted to post and say: What a great bike! Smooth, killer brakes and suspension, great wind protection, comfortable, etc, etc. IMHO it is the perfect compliment to the Multi, and it's exact opposite in many ways. I am so glad I didn't sell her, and for all those of you who are scared away by BMW stopping production and all the reliability horror stories...take a really good look as this is one great bike.
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.
