So I hopped on the bike today and the GT250 ('07) flashed 27 degrees at me. Kept flashing it too. So what does it mean when the temperature light is flashing. I ran my errands, it went off after a while, and then came back on. Blinking temps varied from 27 to 34 on my ride btw.

Couldn't find anything about it in the manual. Was it just agreeing with me that it was cold outside?

The thermometer on the GTS flashes as the temperature approaches freezin point. Thus notifying you of the potential for ice on the roads. That is normal behaviour for it.

Oh I didn't assume it was busted, just curious if it had any bearing on operation, or if the bike was just saying "Gee, it sure is cold." Good to know it's just the latter.

Consider it warning of a higher risk of Frostbite, too.

Nah, I'm not worried about frostbite until at least - 10 * C.

I noticed mine flashing at 37 degrees for the last few mornings. I love that feature, except the my face can usually tell whether it's cold or not.
