Today I took it out for my first (of many) Sunday afternoon rides. I took it up to Julian. I was really happy with its performance. It did wonderful in the twisty roads. It bleeds off speed nicely (never had to use the breaks to slow down) going into curves and hold a line great. I am feeling more and more confident being on the two wheels (although there was one curve I was a bit fast for and it started to oscillate under me a bit scary but it recovered nicely). Looking forward to see some of you out there on the roads

The whole GT range are great on the twisties... you'll struggle to find a better handling scoot IMO.. They certainly out-handle most "sports" scooters..

I find that moving the rear preload to 1 setting below the hardest is the best setting foe a mixture of quick steering & stability..

Glad you're enjoying it..

thanks for the tip. Right now I have it one up from the lowest setting. I'll try, in the words of Emeril, "kicking it up a notch!!! BAM"
