New in San Francisco

Post by jfwaller » Sun May 14, 2017 3:07 am

I spent close to 10 years on the Tiger 1050 forum (great, btw), then I traded in my Tiger 1050 for a GT last week. I've been perusing this forum for a few days, and it looks good.
I live in Marin County, north of San Francisco, and commute in most days. The Tiger was a good bike for that, and I'm hoping the GT will be, also offering some long range touring fun when I'm not working.

Purchased the demo from the dealer (Scuderia West) in San Francisco, 900+ miles, at purchase, had just had the break-in service performed. A couple if initial glitches—kickstand spur broken off, MTC faulted a couple times as I began a wine country ride. I chickened out, rode to the dealer instead, where they reset a fault code (the check engine light stayed on after the MTC faults), and they told me that the exhaust valve had caused the trouble light. Posts on this forum relate similar issues, I'll have to wait and see if the fault reappears.
Love the bike. The power and handling are great. :D
