Dang, that thing has quite the road gear! And a good head start. ...

 

Yeah, if you were going to pick a GT to make a long trip on, that wold probably be one of if not the best.

 

Good speed, good fuel usage since it's a diesel, cruise control, power steering and a comfortable seat.

 

HHHMMMMMMM............

Ben may have fled the country. Dave, what's the top speed on that bad boy?


Ben logged on last nite, but did not post. His IP at the time put him in New Mexico........

I wonder what his excuse for THAT would be?

 

Testing the cooling system maybe?  :rolling:

I have these coming in the mail:

The hi/lo decal for the fender was the last decal that we needed :D :D :D
 
We won't be using the stripes.
 
Those are for the HDT1000, but I think that they are for ones with a different hood decal than what I have.

Nothing that I know of.

 

You are probably right.  Ben's cruising the back roads at a speedy 13 MPH with his long, black, greasy ducktails blowing in the breeze  :bigrofl:

Well, now that Ben, and Cat as well so it seems, are back from an extensive test ride/session with the HTD, may we will be getting an update soon :D :D :D
