I currently own a Honda ST 1300/2008, 25K km and never had problems outside of regular services scheduled in the motorcycle manual.

Why this blog appears to be a sieve for problems is concernin;, who’s filitering these REPLY’s. I wandered upon this site while researching issues with heated clothing. I’ve had Harleys, Honda’s, Yamaha’s, BMW’s and even several Kawasaki’s. This bike is a marvel of technology and with all these things going on your gonna have a few problems. My father told me once NEVER buy the first year of a production vehicle; I bought a 2012. I have ridden my GTL like I stole it. Even to the track where it ran 11.3 with full grear and traction control off. I do all the general maint myself and use Amsoil in the crank / trans and rear diff. I expect brakes tires, etc as I approach 10,000 miles.

I am keeping my harley, might not get there as fast but I could care less.

I get it all set in my mind I want the GT and then I read about reliability issues. I realize dissatisfied owners are more likely to post than satisfied owners. I can only hope there are a lot more satisfied owners. What does bother me is the number of used GT/GTL’s that are already on the market.

over priced over rated low resale an poor reliability… how about a sparse dealer network an few parts in stock? dont insult harleys by comparing them to a bmw.
