If I could have spec’d my 2020 without Reverse I would have happily done so. I’ve had it on my 2018 & 2019 GTLE’s and have used it 3 times total ......just to see it working! Almost pointless, at least for me. Other item I would bin would be the Radio/speakers, again pointless on a motorcycle.


Keyless start/central locking which I laughed at when each came out, and thought pointless?! ......I wouldn’t be without, likewise hill-start, a great option, helluva useful yet when it wasn’t an option, I never thought about it.


Enjoy your 2015 and that substantial saving! .......those extra dollars in your pocket will bring double the smile to your face as you saddle up each time.

from memory.... Suzuki 250, 550 Kawasaki 750, 1000, 1100 Honda 350, 900, 1100, 1800
BMW 1000, 1100, 1150, 1200, 1250, 1600
.....they all made me Smile & I'm still vertical, still riding!

Congrads - like the photo (Fayetteville?). Check out the other Texas pie runs as well. We'll have to meet-up on a ride sometime to check it out.

Congrats on the new to you GTL. Buying used saves you so much. Now you have money to spend on farkles.

They are really nice. They sound like they have a slight growl to them but not loud at all.

Looks like I have to work that weekend but I do plan on riding the dickens out of it & actually we did do pie this day. Ended up at Royer's Round Top Café for fried chicken & pie.. The wife loves it as well. She's still trying to master getting on/off the bike, lol. She does love her floorboards that I installed. I will definitely check out those pie runs. Heard about them.
