    Morning all

    Welcome Tripletrouble. glad to see another UK owner visit, have you put your pin in the Owner's map yet? There are a few UK members here and a few of us have met up a couple of times for breakfast at The Shuttleworth Collection in Bedfordshire, which might be a trek too far for you, but keep a look out in the UK sub thread of the European Owners section for any future meets. Enjoy the forum, ride safe. Steve
  2. Even after fitting an extended rear hugger I still get a lot of muck thrown up from the rear tyre. Has anyone tried/ fitted the Givi splash guard? Does it help or is the water thrown up from somewhere else?
  3. Yes, it's a lovely colour. let's hope Yamaha see sense and release it in the U.S. - Just seen that Schuberth make the C4 in a matching blue.....

    900GT Top Case mounting

    Hey murf, could you post some pics please? I'd like to see how this set-up looks (I haven't yet decided whether to put a top box on my GT as the back end looks high so have always thought a top box would look ridiculously so). Cheers Steve

    Cleaning a blue GT ?

    Hi, This is the method I use, I find that the Phantom Blue paintwork doesn't require any special treatment, it comes up lovely! I still can't seem to attach images to posts, but here's a link to my blue GT freshly washed, the blue looks mighty fine!!! [/img] Cheers Steve

    Another UK newbie.

    The potential issue is that the vibration makes the SatNav difficult to read (the heavier the SatNav the worse the issue can be) I think that's why they publish a recommended max weight. However, we all know that manufacturers tend to err on the side of caution which is why I asked if you had any issues. The issue was demonstrated by 'Critical Rider' (who I believe is a forum member) on an earlier model here Cheers Steve

    Another UK newbie.

    Kennydies, can you please do a review once you've used it a few times? It has been discussed on other threads on the forum but the recommended weight limit is only 200g (from memory) so I've steered clear as the TomTom is 420g without mount etc. So I'd be really interested to know whether you find it ok in use. Cheers Steve

    New 900GT. Worcestershire UK

    Hola jesterrich, Glad you are enjoying the GT (managed to do my 600 miles in a weekend before I took it on a trip I'd already booked) a few of us Brits have managed to meet up so far, hopefully once the better weather arrives next year we can get more of the UK forum members together. Cheers Steve P.S. Blue is the BEST colour! :-)

    GPS Mount

    Mike, take a look at this thread if you haven't already. https://fj-09.org/thread/7404/garmin-gps-kits If you mean the fitting kit referred to in this thread the 'old' version will not fit because it relies on the screen mounting holes which are different on the GT. They have a new bracket (also referred to in the thread but it's not recommended for units above 200g) Cheers Steve
