After waiting for about 9 months, I picked up my new G310GS today. All I can say is that I am like a 5 year old in a candy store ( I'm 63 ). I picked it up around 2:30pm and by 4:15pm had about 40 miles on it and had stopped 3 times to show it to the people that helped me out during my wait. I found shifting really difficult - not due to mechanical issues but the shift lever was set too far below the foot peg. I was using the sole welt on the side of my boot to up shift as I could not get my toe under the lever. Once I got home I have now corrected that issue. What a Blast it is to ride. I will have trouble keeping the revs down for the break in period. I am going to be riding it up to LA ( from San Diego, CA ) for a doctors appointment Monday morning around 5:30 am ( appointment is at 9am ) that will put about 240 miles total on it in the one trip. I hope everyone is enjoying their bikes as much as I am. If anyone is in my neck of the woods give me a yell sometime.
