I bought my GTR six months ago - an ex-demonstrator with a couple of hundred miles on the clock. I've now added another 5000. Overall, I'm happy with the bike but my biggest concern is the finish. Already, after just one winter's use, the alloy end cap on the can has been replaced under warranty due to corrosion and other alloy parts are starting to look a little sad too. There's rust inside one of the bar weights, under the seat, starting on the centre stand and all the linkages are blackened. I fitted a Skidmarx hugger to keep the crap off the shock and that seems to do it's job well enough. There was (and probably still is) a fault with the light switch. In very heavy downpours, water shorts the switch causing the main beam to stay on. I soaked the switch with WD40 and haven't had the same trouble since but I'm sure it will manifest itself again at some point. I opted for an extended warranty so that might just get a beating and end up paying for itself! The stock tyres (front and rear) lasted 4000 miles and I changed the originals for Michelin Road Pilot 2's which I find much more confidence inspiring. The original Bridgestones always felt skittish in the wet, particularly at the front end. The engine is sublime and pulls like a train, smooth and torquey, the supension is a liitle soft and can get overworked on bumpy sections but the brakes are absolutely great, with immense stopping power, even fully laden. It returns around 43 mpg in general use, less when ridden hard but does well into the 50's cruising up the motorway. I've fitted a Givi V46 top box using a Phil's Farkels rack, which is study and made of aluminium which means you don't have to have those support bars underneath, like with the Givi rack option - and don't have to drill the body work either! I also fitted ST1300 OEM heated grips, with a statndard contoller, which fit perfectly and work very well indeed, much better than aftermarket jobbies. The taller screen doesn't seem to me to make a significant difference. The GTR is perfect for touring, commuting and general use. It doesn't feel it's size and can still filter through traffic well enough. Two up is no problem at all, as you'd expect. I have a Autocom intercom installed and a Garmin Zumo 550 sat-nav for touring. The OEM sat-nav mount is a nice option and fits easily. I also had the crash bars fitted, just in case, but they are very expensive. All in all, I'm very happy with what is and excellent bike. The jury's still out on the finish though.
