Hello from N.E. Cincinnati, Ohio

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Sold my FJR last fall and looking at the Tracer 9GT as a lighter replacement.  Waiting on the rain to break so I can take a test ride at a dealer.  What, besides the seat (uncomfort) are the biggest gripes of current owners?

Thanks in advance,

Apart from the seat,no gripes at all.👍  If you road-test a red one,you'll end up buying one. 😊

There is never enough time or money to do it right the first time.

Once you get used to the twin screen dash it really just disappears.  The fuel gauge is funky but once you learn how thirsty the bike is it works.

I find the seat and windscreen are very adequate and don't feel like spending hundreds of $ only to be disappointed.  My only farkles were frame sliders, a SHAD 45L rear rack and top case, a Garmin Zumo XT and a dual USB device.

I forgot to mention that the Bridgestone T32 tires feel good and similar to the Michelin Road 5 I had on my FZ-1.  They have a bit over 8K miles and have plenty of tread left.  I may ride conservative which may be why but no flat center in the rear.

I did get screen protectors for the dash to prevent scratching them.
