Well went out this morning and did about 50 odd mile and its certainly been worth the wait.

Took the panniers off yesterday I won't use them too much but because I bought it on a PCP it wasn't a great deal more to have the GT+ model as the GFV went up as well.

Paired up the Suzuki MySpin App up yesterday seemed easy enough once I sussed you needed to start the bike !!

Removed them reflectors but its not a 2 minute job !!

Anyway went round some local roads to Slaidburn and came back over Waddington Fell and through Clitheroe and back home.

Bike feels fantastic plenty of power compared to the few KTM Dukes I've recently had and everything worked perfectly including the App. Had some quiet music on in my helmet with the Sena bluetooth headset and could view Maps off my iPhone on the display if I wanted.

Bike sounds great I'd been looking at aftermarket cans but don't think I'l bother now.

Quickshifter was faultless but I kept forgetting and using the clutch as well but that was very light but no adjustment for hands but the front brake does.

Did stall on me once as I approached a tight bend going into Slaidburn which was fun !! Thought it was meant to have some anti stall feature but I could be wrong ? I'll check the bike later to see if its anything you need to activate.

Make sure you alter your mirrors before setting off as they are some reach away haha.

The sheep seemed to like it I left it running and they came running over !!

Any questions just ask but its a great bike just what I wanted something to do everything on and have a turn of speed as well, oh and have some gadgets haha.

Yeah it was strange geared down from 2nd to 1st for the tight u turn and the lights just went out on dash ?? I'll keep my eye on it, pulling away was always really smooth and no jittery throttle at low speeds was evident.

When you take the panniers off with the silly reflectors it has 2 more underneath the rear seat hanging down !!
You have to unbolt the inner mudguard to get to the Allan key bolts which hold them in place.

My UK bike didn't have the front ones but I've known UK bikes with them before I've had and removed :)

Yeah I'm going to have a mess with it tomorrow outside the house just doing slow speed manoeuvring but this was as I dropped it from 2nd to 1st hopefully nothing.

Didn't feel any vibrations to be honest in any speed but did have my winter gloves on as it was freezing.

The Bike must be really factory fresh - noted that blue paint has rubbed off on a couple of sheep.
The sheep made me think of Youtube Blogger John Fish a.k.a. Lamb Chops Rides.
Perhaps, they are his loyal Subscribers, and mistook you for him, Shurm ?

Rob.

Yeah it must have they got that close 😂 I left it running to take a pic and they all piled round it I was thinking don't ram it 😆

I really liked the SX I was thinking about another then the GT was announced. The thing I like about the GT was the MySpin App so I could have maps and music at the same time on screen without having to buy anything extra.
I wasn't bothered about an IMU and a centre stand but I wish the GT had 2 headlights on it does my OCD in only having 1 😂.
I've had loads of bikes (25 in 15 years and that's only the ones in my iPhone had loads before) but I've always got pretty bored soon either too slow, no protection, can't carry stuff, too heavy, just boring, problems etc etc. I'm really hoping this GT ticks all the boxes I need (y) Its fast enough, big enough has the gadgets and its great fun to ride !!

You do have to have screen so it doesn't lock but it all works pretty good and you can select music etc by using the bike control buttons. I got the small tank bag so the phones always being charged I thought all this won't work from the off but it has and its very good.

The new Honda has CarPlay but Suzuki must have decided to use this instead, I wish they had of used CarPlay instead though.

I want the screen for navigation....I just ruined the camera in my iphone this weekend out on my dr650...waiting this long it better work.

I think you will like the built in screen it does look good next time I'm out I'll actually put a route in and see how it performs, just can't understand if you come out the MySpin App screen why you can't go back in without stopping !!??

It’s likely because of hands free safety issues? Maybe
Well its bonkers you can faff around with it loads whilst in the App, change music, ring people but once you return to the main bike screen you can't go back, it normally only takes a second when stopped to do it ? Might be because the App will close on the phone so you can't go back to it without selecting the App on your phone ? I'll try it soon that must be why, once you go out the MySpin App it will close on the phone.

Just tried it on the paddock stand you can go in and out of the App fine when not moving must be something to do with safety why you can't but like I said its bonkers that.

Fi light is still on as well but I did read somewhere about starting them up on a stand could maybe bring the light on ? Need to google and get it booked in seems to run fine though.
