New Member - Continental GT

Hi folks!

I just picked up my GT on Friday, and I'm loving it already!  I live in Brisbane, Australia and we had a brilliant day today for a ride.  Here's a couple of short vids what kind of roads we have nearby:

I went out this morning and got an Emgo Shorty Reverse Cone Exhaust to replace the boat anchor that came on the bike.  Compare the two and explain to me how the thing doesn't tip over off its centerstand!


...and the shorty


G'day from Brisbane, Australia!

welcome
watched your video. thats a pretty quick run for a new bike. a couple of them mainly C5's did big ends in pretty quick from a mild work out from scratch - maybe the gt's handle it better...or maybe not ::) time will tell i guess
great bit of handling though. well done ;)

Congrats on your new GT, and welcome aboard.
Nice vid. If possible, try and do the run-in procedure. It's worth it for later.
