    Hey Y'all,

    Got "the bike" last week, rode one day (345 miles) and it's been raining here everyday since! I don't mind riding in the rain, sometimes enjoy it ... I just don't want to get the new bike wet!!!! And what happens to "all that chrome"????

    Many Honda's, lots of Yamaha's, few Harley's ... loved them all, disliked only one?

    What makes is worse is that the weather forecast is just messing with us--all week the Weather Channel was showing this Saturday as low 80s and sunny. I was licking my chops and built a long route. Now it's saying overcast and 40% chance of thunderstorms. I wish they'd told me that before I got excited.

    This is an awful weather pattern. It is not like we are dealing with a minor rain or two. We have been getting pounded pretty hard.

    Where did you pick up the GTL? Morton's? Very nice bike. I rode a friend's GTL last year. So smooth!
