I'm sorry, but, I think my '04 GT (peidmont red) is a much better looking bike than the new one. I would like the new motor in a bike (wait until some serious testing is done) but the new GT looks like something out of "Star Trek". Too angular, not really smooth lines like my '04. Of course since BMW's are famous for 100K or double that, I'll be keeping mine awhile. I will never own any other (brand). Still going to try out my buddies FJR1300 next summer, or I'll break his arm.
