Rode yesterday at my dealer in Raleigh.....I was blown away and it far exceeded my expectations.
I currently have a 2008 RT and the GTL feels far more nimble and flickable. It's also much easier to ride at parking lot speeds, despite its weight due to the low center of gravity. It had the standard seat and I could sit flat-footed (5'10'', 29" inseam)
For some reason I always found my myself in 6th gear, which is no problem due to the incredible torque at low RPMs. The bike only had 225 miles on the clock, so it was in the break-in period, but I never went over 3500 rpms, even though I tried to rev it more, I didn't need to....gobs of power.
The seat is very comfortable (but an all day ride will tell the true tale - no pun intended), and the mirrors are perfectly placed.
I hit 85 on the interstate and was able to keep my shield up with only my sunglasses on....no tearing as on my RT.
I kept the radio on....not sure I would like that but if I was slabbing somewhere on a weekend it would be great to hear college and pro football games.
That's it....am #1 on my dealer's pre-sell list so hopefully it won't be too much longer
