Just got a 2015 GT

Over the Christmas break fam and went on a road trip to NM and bought back to CA a 2015 GT. Really excited for this bike. Went back and forth trying to decide between RT1200 and this bike. Ultimately it was the motor and this specific color (orange) that moved me towards the bike. Coming off of VTX1300, FJR1300, Vision, Street Glide, Judge, Chieftain, VFR, and Cross Country.

Thank you all in advance (I've been reading and learning from the posts). I look forward to contributing what I learn etc in the future.

Welcome to the forum! Whether you do your own work on the bike or just have questions, you will find tons of great info here.
I, too, rode a VFR before the K16, loved the smoothness of the V4, you won't be disappointed by the big K

Welcome to the forum. I did the same thing with the RT after I smashed my first GT. I bought the GT and felt back at home.
