    Hey Phil. I saw the ride out pics, how you enjoying the GT? I had an RC8R previously, and was completely in love with that LC8 engine. So easy on the road. Surprisingly delicate though...

    It is a great Bike, not yet been able to really push it as the temps/roads not up to it but it is fun. My other half enjoys the performance even though we restricted to low revs running in + 5c!! I was lucky to buy one of the cheap ones. Not missing the S1000RR yet lol

    I like the RC8, really good looking bike but never ridden one, nearly bought one in 2009 but saw the S1000RR at the Intermot show Cologne and bought mine in March 2010.

    Very pretty bike, IMO. Always got admirers, especially non-bikers. Always needed fettling though, esp. the clutch and valves, which I couldn't do.
    Reason I got the RR was rock solid engine, general reliability and dealer experience. Turned me into a speed nut tho.
