The gt just came out. This might be one of the first ones to make it to the US. The 800gt replaces the 800st. I sat on it... Nice bikeLooking good, atractaspis. Bet you can't wait for some better weather.
I didn't realise they made a F800gt, it looks a lot like my f800s with and AC Schnitzer fairing.
Already got the side bags and trunk bag . Can't wait to ride the bike..:clap: Glad to hear it .I got my Montego blue R12R in October and can't stay off it. Plan some mild mods and to purchase the detachable bags by springtime. What will be the primary way you ride yours?
I already got to take her out for a spin today.. it was about 37 degrees and no more ice on the road... I am even more in love now :001_tt1:There is nothing like putting the first mile on a new bike. She is a beauty and I can see you now sitting on her in a cold garage dreaming of warm weather.
May I recommend warmer gloves before you go to handguards.I already got to take her out for a spin today.. it was about 37 degrees and no more ice on the road... I am even more in love now :001_tt1:
and now I know one thing for sure: I need hand guards if I want to ride in cold weather ever! The hand grip heater was nice and toasty warm and I had to turn it off eventually (it got too hot), but the back of my hands was freezing..
I will give that a try first! I was wearing fairly thin gloves for 37 degrees. I haven't seen any hand guards yet that I like.. Besides the clear ones from wunderlich that they don't make for my bike yet anyways.May I recommend warmer gloves before you go to handguards.

What I was wondering about thicker gloves though: can you still feel much of the warmth from the hand grip heaters? Does it still help to have them on when I wear thick gloves?
I have Gerbings g3 gloves but the first time I used them, they burned my hands. Since then, in really cold weather ( under 30 degrees), I ride with the Gerbings but not plugged in. The heated grips do add to keeping my hands warm on those trips; but as Dave pointed out, at those temps, the tips of my thumbs that are not able to touch the grips get a tad cold. At temps over 30 degrees, I ride with Lee Parks outlast gloves. They have thinner palms than the uppers so the heated grips work better and working other accessories like a Scla Rider is easier. Also, the outlast feature allows the heat from the grips to travel to the back of the gloves.If anything thick gloves work better with heated grips. They retain the heat more and spread it out across the glove. I still get cold thumbs though.
hand guards are a most.
Congrats, that might even be the first light gray bike in the states.
BTW light gray is a water down version of the matte one, O N E V E R Y T H I N G Sorry:001_tt2::001_tt2:
