Congrats on the new bike! Looks like you've got quite the collection there. I'm not jealous... really, I'm not.

Hmmm, there's that 57 in the name again......any prize for guessing your age :lol:

Great choice mate! Keep in mind the GT will feel a bit rough in the front end for the first 500mls, but it softens up and becomes a real smoothie. I used to think the automatic Sach suspension on my Caponord 1200 could never be beaten.....but now.....take a bow KTM-WP.. :D
