I hate it. 110 miles on it. Took it down the highway solo today and it pulls left and right in dirty air. Following a tractor trailer is the worst. Bike is completely unsafe above 70 MPH

I had an LT which is the older version of the GTL... that thing was a moose, too big and heavy for me. Super stable @ 140mph though and had more to go when I ran out of straight car less road!

I still have my LT. She is a very Rubenesque motorcycle. No comparison with the GA at all Brother. I f'n love my GA. It will follow me to Valhalla.

djfalkenstein, I guess you missed my point... I would take the GA over the LT no doubt. They aren't even close as far as slow handling in a parking lot. But I'm kinda bummed about the 101 mph top speed of the GA.

Bren tuning can fix the speed limiter and give you more power.

Try changing the ride & suspension settings a little firmer. That seemed to work for me. I get a sight wobble every now and then in dirty air but nothing that would have me trade my GA in. Maybe BMW will supply a steering damper or air foil someday??? Probably not. But I do love this bike more than my Road Glide!!

Has anyone experimented yet with a different front tire than OEM on the Grand America that tamed the front-end wobble above 70 mph and in dirty air?
