Red face Hello from CO

Hello from the Colorado Front Range.
After a long riding history involving a fair number of motos, including numerous GS models, the venerable LT, and a number of others, I had to take a forced break from riding for a couple of years. Our riding over the last 10 years had mostly focused on the ADV side of things. My wife has always been riding pillion with me, and ever since we sold our LT many years ago she has missed the luxurious passenger accommodations which can just not be matched by the GS, no matter how much money is spent on seats and backrests.

So for the re-entry into the world of traveling by motorcycle we decided to start again on the road side of things with something resembling the old LT comfort level.

Which brings us to this forum. A local fellow rider was offering his 2016 GTLE for sale, compelling us to give him a rather large sum of money.
As the bike is stock, more money is about to be spent on audio BT, visibility, and aerodynamics upgrades, as nicely documented by many on this forum.
In advance I would like to thank the many folks here who have blazed the path for us, which will save me from having to research and figure out everything on my own.


Now please do me a favor and reply often while ask questions so I can get over my 3 post count and actively participate in this forum!

Welcome, I live in Amarillo, enjoy riding in Colorado only 5 or so hours away for me. I go there several times a year, then stay away from the snow. Enjoy your ride.
