I recently purchased an 04 GT and I've never owned a bike that scared me the way this one does. Forget riding in any type of wind at all as it feels like you and the bike are going to end up blown across the road. I just returned from a rather brief ride after realizing the wind gusts were just overpowering. Today they are up to 25 miles per hour which this bike doesn't seem to handle well at all. I'm considering keeping my R1150 RS which I have for sale and selling this one instead. The front of the bike is very jittery and has been since I got it. I've followed the tire pressure suggestions etc and even on fairly calm days there will be more than one occasion where I'm freaked out by the bikes handling characteristics. Is it me? I have to say I could ride my Harley (sorry) in wind, rain etc and not be scared I'm gonna blow away. I really thought I would enjoy this bike, but its very hairy to ride. My RS was a blast to ride, handled great but of course being a speed freak I wanted the GT, now I'm uncertain if I made the right choice.
