Dealer says all is OK, so i am ignoring the "runmble" i think i can hear. got some better ear plugs and she purrs. The dealer re-created the "Clunk" 50 x worse than i ever made it happen, says its the gearbox play between the gears and is completely normal.
Took the bike out yesterday to give the bike a long run, ended up doing nearly 400miles, very imprest with the stability, bike balance and the comfort both at speed and country roads.
the bike can move.
Still getting used to the bike weight but now have refined the pre-load to compensate for the panniers and the ride is great. Took the wife on the back to work each morning last week and the bike backend bounced quite noticably when setting off until the suspension and dampening was adjusted and this was very simple. She has a lot more room than on the XT, so much so that she may need to place something between the to box and her back, and the bike handles two up with panniers far better than the XT.
Just booking the ferry for in a few weeks time taking the bike -- sorry wife over to Brussels for her birthday.
Looking forward to this, just need to (as i have been ordered) get rid of the XT as "we have no room for both bikes", I will miss her as it has been a great bike and i would say for a normaly built person traveling with luggage going off road the XT is more adgile and easier to manage but as I need two up plus luggage and dont realy go off road (camp sites dirt tracks excluded) the GSA appears perfect.
