    I thought it was funny, how deWaal quickly backed away from Leno's "just like i-drive" comment.

    Regardless of whether I would buy one of these machines, they're pretty cool. I've always liked inline sixes.

    I like the start up presentation of the dash.

    The showing of the 6 is subtle and cool

    +1 here. I have four of them And if the 16GT is not too bulky but anywhere close to the 13GT as far as overall envelope is concerned, I am in the market for one.

    Mike,

    I agree. It may be time to sell everything and go with the new GTL, ride more - - work on them less. .

    Terence,

    Yep, this R75/6 rebuild is much worse than the R100 because it sat so long. Fun may come later, but as of now it's a pain in the ^%$#@! . However, I will NOT quit!!!

    It'll be worth it though. Plenty of advice at Tech Weekend.
