First Ride on my '07 GT
I picked my GT up in Dallas, Texas on Saturday!
I jumped on it and rode to Memphis, TN and spent the night with a friend of mine.
It was a 490 mile ride and let me tell you my first impression of the GT.
Got up Sunday morning and rode to Bowling Green, KY where I am in the process of moving to.
The power, handling, electronics, and fun factor is AWESOME!!!!!
The seat is the biggest piece of @HIT I have heard felt.
After about an hour... I think I developed hemroids!!!
I am 6', 195 lbs, pant size 33x33, athletic build.
The whole time it felt like all 195 pounds was being slammed forward into the tank.
Forgive me for repeating what everyone else has already said, but this damn near ruined the entire ride. It was terrible!!!
I had a Corbin on my K12RS that I enjoyed for nearly 53k miles..... The seat was never an issue.
The second issue was knee pain. I had the peg lowering kit on my RS from day one. Will a kit on this GT accomplish the same thing? It felt like my knees were in my chest. I tried the seat in both positions and it didn't help in either position.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated... I have to order a seat if I am going to enjoy this machine!!!
