Ever Seen Two 17SDGT's Out In The Wild ?

Post by Aussie Dave » Fri Aug 16, 2019 8:13 am

Here's a rare sight in Aus....... 2 x 17 model SDGT's on the same ride........ until now I have only occasionally seen another GT flash past...... this time I had arranged a coffee ride with another forum member - 1st SDGT I have ever been able to follow... and same for him...... his was nicer, with an Akra muffler and the black-silver-matt orange tank spoilers.......

I've still never seen one outside of a dealership or the annual motorcycle manufacturer show.

Hell, i've only ever seen 2 990 SMT's in the wild (what I own) ONE time. I was at the gas station at Deal's Gap and another one pulls up and it blew both our minds!

Yeah, like big orange Bengali tigers...... they are not seen, but they are out there....... all dealer stock gets sold quickly here in Aus, so I know they are out there....... 8-)

I get to see more 1290Kat's if I stop at a well known coffee shop and wait a while...... they eventually come in for a feed/drink..... :lol: .
