Seen just under 155mph on the clock this morning from the GT. I am 220 lbs with kit and I use ESA setting single + luggage. As this is my first BMW I am still struggling with the real twisty roads as I still cannot get any feeling from the front end. My problem now is I am now expected the front never to wash-out. I am just getting too confident with the bike as I scraped the right hand peg, and when I look at the front trye there is no chicken strip at all. Anyway I am off to france tomorrow for two weeks with my good-lady wife and will be using the bike as it was designed, long distance touring. But I have to say the fun I had with the GT this morning was fantastic. I am still missed my ZX10R but not as much after my first 200 miles of my own. Really smiling folks and thank you for all the good advice posted on this forum. Good luck, what a bike. Ian
