    Hanging up the helmet.

    My GT is gone. I sold it to a niece older fellow from Ventur, CA. We just loaded it onto his trailer and he headed South. I really enjoyed that scooter but since I'm only running around town with my...

    Cramp Busters are indeed a help. I cut the extended end of mine down to about two inches long. That still works when you lay your palm on the throttle but doesn't snag a glove or sleeve as happened...

    My '13 GT shares the garage with my K1100LT so it doesn't get all that much mileage for its age. At 12,200 miles the chain tension hasn't changed much. Still still in spec. I ride pretty hard on the...

    Much easier on the earlier ones, round plug just under the seat on the left side near the seat hinge.
  7. Looks like it's getting close to the time to hang up my helmet.

    Old age is a bummer! At 76 my arthritis is becoming more than an annoyance. Two weeks ago I made a short trip, about 120 miles in total and the next day my right wrist was on fire for two days. I've...

    The GT does have a lower CG than most of the motorcycles I've owned. Mostly it's because its fuel tank is quite low and the engine is inclined like a regular cycle. It's GG is higher than a...

    Yes indeed it will do better than 80. I've had mine to 116mph measured by GPS (on a closed section of roadway of course). It was pretty well against the wall at that speed. That was with the top box...

    I fill my scooter until I see about about a half inch on top of the nozzle stop in the filler neck. Also It helps to have the bike on the center stand when refueling if you want to get a full tank.
