We actively partake in day and weekend runs and aim to share GTS experience with one another. We ware a member of "Yamaha club" officially. ( Gathering with the other Yamaha-made owners clubs.)
Sadly, the GTS is not popular in Japan. Some members try to modify their GTS, but it is hard to find aftermarket parts in Japan.
Riders know the GTS has a different feel than other bikes.
We like it!
We send greetings and friendship from the home of the GTS to all GTSers in the world.
