Finally

Well after much consideration and from everyone here giving me great advice about the GTL, Wheels & upgrades. I went and got my deposit back on the new 2020 GTL because of the recall. Found a nice gently ridden 2015 GTL with only 7000 miles and considering it was half the price of a new one. Not having the reverse I can live with. So far it's been okay without it. Love the bike as it came with all kinds of goodies & I did add some of my own.

Congrats! That's practically a brand new bike. One of the good years also. And just think....No transmission issues and no Bren tune needed to go fast.....

Nice looking bike Longjaw. How are those pipes? I am on the fence about putting them on. I must say though, I sure like the look of them.

Congratulations! Good looking bike -- like new -- sounds like you got quite a buy. Shoot, those Akrapovics are worth $2,000 all by themselves!
