FJ09 to Tracer GT - is it worth it?

Recommended Posts

After trading for the GT, I used it as designed, and took a 3,400 mile trip through the southwestern US. The bike is good on long interstate runs, where the cruise control is appreciated, but is a total blast when the roads become twisty. The power of the triple is great, even at elevation. The riding ergonomics are good for long days in the saddle. The stock suspension worked fine for me with some extra preload to compensate for the load. The stock windscreen works well to deflect wind, but is noisy. No buffeting for me. The seat padding is ok, but I do not understand why many of the manufacturers build seats that slope foreward like this one. The combination of foreward slope and grippy cover material makes for an uncomfortable backside. A Corbin is planned. Overall, a great bike.

I don't believe i feel it though the handlebars, it's more a case of me hearing a "clunk"

i heard that the sound made by the floating disc brakes.
