Talking It Finally Happened!

Yup... I'm a proud owner of a new 2011 Sprint GT-Pacific Blue. Odometer had 0.1 miles on it. I put in 100.8 miles on Sunday afternoon. Going to try and get the break-in miles done this week, so I can get the first dealer visit out of the way. I'm on vacation all this week. New bike, vacation and some more bits and pieces to install on the bike. Life will be good this week!

Pics soon to follow.
Gotta go to the store and buy a microSD card for the Zumo660, some Goo-Gone for sticker/decal removal, Turtle Wax Clear, scanning the wiring and location diagram for the GT with laminated copy(s), beer, ordering connectors and contacts from Eastern Beaver for the nav connector interface, http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/El...econoseal.html, more beer

Thanks guys for the kind words!

I hit 220 miles on it today. Winds are pretty harsh today (20-30mph). Only ache or pain so far is my throttle hand. Just haven't been on a bike in a while. So far it's been a blast. What I've experienced so far, this Sprint GT is a great bike. Plus I received a sweet deal on it!
By the way, my new TourMaster Sonora Air Jacket (3/4 length) is just phenomenal! The TourMaster Dry-Mesh Gloves are really comfortable. Don't know how water resistant they are.
DaveM I'm in total agreement with you! The Remus Titanium pipe looks great, sounds great and removed a bunch of weight off my bike. Now if I can remove more weight off me, I'll be good to go!
Pics will soon follow, with an equipment list...
