Picked up my new Crystal Grey GT Saturday. The 135 mile ride home was a blast. Can't say enough about the power and handling of this bike. Its great! The seat was fine in my opinion. My only complaint is the windshield. At 6'2", my head took a beating. That's the only negative I have found at this point. I love the styling too!

My new GT has the tall windscreen on it, and it works fine for me 5'11' but I do sit sit high. I ride with it about 1/2 up most of the time. It doesn't look excessively tall either.

I'll have to say the Crystal Grey looks much better in person.

Try lowering the windshield about half way. I know it sounds wrong, but try it. It will be windy and noisy, but there will be no buffeting if you find the sweat spot. Ear plugs are a must!

Cee Bailey's is now taking advance orders on replacement shields for the '06 GT on their web site.

No affiliation, just a previous customer who's had mixed experiences with their products, but I do have one of these on order
