Okay. So I'm not big fan of the new GT. Too angular. Too toned down from a sporting look. Looks like they left a LT and a S in the shed to mate, and out popped this thing. I haven't seen a picture of one without the side bags yet to make a better assessment. The fact that I love my current GT is that I can take the sidebags off, the trunk off, keep the RS windshield on, and it looks like a sport bike (and acts like one too). Especially with the turned up exhaust pipe. The fact that it is completely functional with cruise, etc. is a bonus. So I guess I'm really admitting that my bike is a cross-dresser between sport and tour. There is no hiding the fact that the new GT is tour-only. It might perform like a sport bike, but it won't look like one. Guess I've just talked myself into saving major $$$ not wanting to trade my bike in yet!
