    Well finally got a wee blast on the bike today and first impressions of the GT are that im very impressed. Lovely smooth gear change and cracking engine, was worried that i might find it a bit uncomfortable coming from a big beemer but not at all its so comfy. Cracking bike and really looking forward to getting out many times.

    Some pics of the lovely scenery i am lucky to have on the doorstep.

    One thing i did notice was when your pottering around at like 20-30mph in town there is like a ticking noise, as soon as the revs come up its no apparent any ideas what this could be? Bikes done 20K

    Nice pics and lovely bike! There'll be a group of us heading that way in about 6 weeks time! ;) re the clicking, could it be the cam chain tensioner?

    Cheers Andy, ah so is the cam chain tensioner a thing that can go on them?? I am hoping its not valves needing adjusted.

    Enjoy your time when your over, got some pals coming up from the IOM start of May and we are heading over Skye and then up north should be good...

    Its just a wild guess, should be more noticable on one side of the engine if it is. Not an issue though. I think its self adjusting so in time it will click to the next position and fix itself so to speak.
    Looking forward to the trip, will be over for a week starting 13th May. There's a thread about it here...
