    I have the GT PRO and I wish I would have gotten the bigger tank. I have to fill up almost every day on my commute to work.

    Whaou ! almost 400km per day ! Bravo

    I work 40 miles outside Las Vegas with no gas stations in-between. Could I make it two days, probably, is it a good idea, no!

    I'm allegedly getting my gtx delivered tomorrow. I wrote a $22,500 check for it 10 days ago, Brought it home and the clutch was slipping like hell if you 3/4 gassed it in 3rd to 6th. I would peg 9k before I could let off. I had it 2 days and and put 200 miles on it. They came and got it and have had it a week. I ask the salesman numerous times if it had the clutch bleed recall done. he said it's ready to go. He didn't know sh#te.  I found out when I got home and started figuring out the display. It had 300 miles on it.  their add said 3 miles. They accidently left a couple of zeros. I'm sure. I'm hoping whoever put those miles on it didn't gass it hard enough to get it to slip. I ask salesman there to show me some things on it. Neither on new absolutely zero. I test rode it before I wrote the check and never gassed it hard. Everything else though was great. Quickshifter is way cool. I ve been on a 600lb Tenere 10 years. This tiger feels like a sport bike comparing both with full tanks.  It feels a lot easier to push around than the Tenere. The big tank knocks the wind off is a good thing to me. It has the best heat management on any bike I've had. I have a set off Motoz gps tractionaters on the porch now ready. I've had 50-50 tires for the last 70k miles. The short time I had it. I went down some gravel roads that I ride my Tenere on with one hand and got kinda scared a couple of times with the street tires. Upper crash bars, risers and  Big Givi windshield are here. Me and buddy gonna lay it over and see how hard it is to get up. I don't really care for the handlebar bend. If the risers and moving the bar to the back adjustment hole. I'm going to try a spare set of Tenere bars on it. They fit me perfect on the Tenere.
