New 900GT owner

Hi all, picking up a 2019 GT up tomorrow morning. Biker on and off for almost 40 years now, been through a variety of bikes in that time. Traded in a Tracer 700 which has been a superb choice for the last four years, but fancied a change to reflect a change in intended use from a pure into London commuter (the 700 racked up 49k) to a post COVID popping in a couple of days a week at the most, so the 900 ticked so many boxes. Really looking forward to the experience and learning from this forum.

Thanks all - picked up this morning and spent the afternoon transferring all my useful kit over. The bike came with a Yamaha tank bag and a range of upgrades (indicators, spots, engine protection). Also an Akra exhaust which sounds sweet, but had the knock on effect of losing the centre stand. I've ordered a wheel roller stand to make chain cleaning easier. Quick question - the tray under the seat has a central plastic divider that doesn't seem to serve any purpose, and restricts the amount of stuff you could fit there. Has anyone cut that away to increase usability?

Welcome, there is a thread about cutting the divider out.  I'm sure there was a reason they put it in there but it does not seem to serve any useful purpose and many remove it.
