Hi there from the Pacific Northwest!
I just bought a GTS 300 HPE (verdi relax) in the end of August and am love love loving it. I am going perhaps a little hogwild imagining all the amazing accessories and acoutrements that I obviously absolutely require to go with it. So far I have limited myself to ordering the top case, the top case suport, and the rear crash guard but I have an excel spreadsheet with an assortment of other ideas and pricings ad nauseam which I may or may not ever get to. First I will read this forum to get what peoples experiences have been with things before I go crazy.
I've put about 150 miles on it so far, about half of that in one trip where I was riding moderately hilly terrain and flats for about an hour and a half before the engine got an hour's break, some stop and go traffic, and then the return trip.
Most of this trip was about 40mph but some stretches I got up to 60 or 65 on the speedometer (i think the speedometer reads at minimum 5 mph faster than the bike actually goes, but whatever).
When in stopped traffic, I'm assuming the hyperdrive loudness was just a fan coming on -- it seemed to do that only when I was stopped for more than a minute or two but as soon as I started moving again, the airflow probably cooled the engine down enough that I was fine. OK so I'm not inordinately worried about that but wouldn't mind some input.
What I am a little worried about is, after getting up to about 60-65mph I noticed that the wheels/tires felt wobbly or almost as though there was some kind of nubby bump on the tires. At first I thought I had a flat until I realized if I had a flat I'd probably be sprawled all over the pavement already. I slowed down carefully and the wobbly/nubby went away, sped up again and it was back again.
Does anyone else experience this at speeds ~60mph?
It's really nice to find this board, I'm looking forward to doing a lot of reading.
