Based on your screen name, I was going to ask if you once had a Harley and Bonnie...

Anyway, just type GTS into Search here, and brace for the avalanche of threads and thought-pieces...including what might seem way too many posts from folks like me. Rest assured that Grand Turismo Somethingorother is very much loved and fussed-over.


Melody, finally back on the road in a few hours. (For the full story, do a search for The Melody Chronicles.)

Sometimes, I think my GTS is the closest I'll come to having a kid. (Imagining stepsons and cat looking aghast in unison.)

I have an excuse as I'm a scooter club's VP and CMO (Chief Media Officer) in charge of our Instagram and YouTube content. At least that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

My wife loves her bright yellow 2021 GTS Super. Nothing but positive things to say about it thus far.

Well I did have a Bonnie(in the early '60's) & do have a Harley , but the Old Rocker tag has nothing to do with bikes, i am Old & i've been playing in Rock & Roll then Rock bands since late '59 & i'm really pleased to say that i still am.
Nice to hear from some GTS owners, i've wanted one for a few years, but could never convince myself about the passenger(my wife) suitability, but we're just about at an age now that with our reduced mileage, we're going to buy one & worry about it later.
The Sportster we have in the UK is up for sale & will be replaced with a GTS300, maybe a HPE.

Gosh, just look at all the GTS posts on this site and the many positive things said about the GTS here. Given how prominently the GTS figures in posts on this site, you'd think it would be called the Modern GTS.

That's a good thing...trust me! They'll worry they won't inherit your wealth and they'll be extra nice to you.

The GTS300 is terrific two up. My only complaint is the placement of the passenger pegs. They are WAY too far forward. Whenever my wife has her feet on them her feet bump against my legs and I have to shift forward. I never had this problem on my lx150, but that scooter really struggled up some hills with both of us on it.

Wow…well, just shoot me if you already know this one (I'll be gobsmacked if you don't), but it was the very first thing I thought of when you first posted:

I haven't gone two-up with my GTS yet (Le Wife used to do that was past partners, but not up to it again just yet), but I've known of others who managed it just fine.

I'm wondering if the GT300 will continue to evolve with regular updates or be replaced with a whole new body and power unit at one stage ?
