Congrats on the new toy. I have the exact model/color. Simply the best. What volcano is that? Rainer, Hood or St. Helens? I have a similar pic of my first bike with Shasta in the background, but that's too far from Wa.

It's Shasta. I dragged my trailer down to NorCal to get it. (700 miles each way so it was a long weekend but the price was right so it was worth it IMO.)

I have an ezCAN and am still waiting for some other electrical stuff to show up so I hadn't planned on riding it until I added aux lights and flashing brake LEDs. But I wanted to get the title transferred before The 4th so I took it for its first "real" 60 mile ride today.

The cruise control is driving me nuts! It took me a minute or two to figure out that the throttle by wire disengages the cruise if you roll it all of the way off. I have cruise control installed on all of my old Ks and by habit the first thing I do when the cruise engages on those bikes is roll off the throttle. I'll have to unlearn that habit for riding the GT.

Aside from that it was great and I'm very pleased with my purchase. I didn't want to get a ticket on my first ride but I did take a few turns at speed. It's amazing how well it turns and how effortless it is.

I found the CC to be the easiest of any CC Ihave ever used. Simple left thumb swipe for on or off. And it is instant, on my HD you would drop a few MPH before the speed set. The CC will disengage wit clutch lever movement, any brake application or full rolloff of throttle.
