Long-time lurker, first-time poster

Hello all. Got my GT in late July but have been browsing this board since about May. Easy to see there is lots of info already here, and I hope I can also make some entertaining (if not necessarily useful) contributions.

I also have a 2013 Bonneville SE, but she has become the poor, neglected second wife more and more of late. Here she is trying to ignore the younger, faster, more practical model that's getting first dibs on rides:

I'm in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The first photo is from near Thallon, about five hours west. I bought the GT because I wanted to tour properly again. Six thousand kays down and I'm not disappointed. The Kato is a mile-muncher, and I love it.

G'day and welcome fellow Queenslander :)

Great to have another Brisbane based rider converted to the 'light'...... ;)

Keep up the pics eh...... forum has been a little slow lately so it's great to see some shots of Gt's out in the wild. (same goes for other forums too...... people must be out riding their bikes :roll: ).

Thanks Dave. You can call me Mr, Mrs, or Mark ;)

Here's another couple of pics from my first proper ride on the GT.

Gingers Creek, Oxley Highway:

Cheers Mr,Mrs, errr Mark... :lol: (the second wife comment gave a clue.....)

I've not had the pleasure of introducing my GT to the Oxley yet........ actually, I failed to get the previous Italian bike to the Oxley (my R1200RT companion holed a tyre outside of Dorrigo on a long weekend so we were stranded and had to cut that loop)....... bit of a poor record eh? All that lovely road waiting for me.... :mrgreen:
