    Yes it does. There were a VERY few "Western" version dashes, but those are a rare bird indeed. It will say Km right on it under the Odo in white. (dont be confused, they all say Km/h and Mph under the trip meter) If it is blank under the odo, buy the bike for the guages, you'll probably double your money.

    And nearly everything is available for the GC in one form or another except body panels.

    It appears he's veering a bit north of me. I'd like to have a chat with him and see the Vincent but I'm too busy right now to take even a short ride. What an awesome trip to make on a Vincent!

    I'm near Kingston NY at the base of the Catskill mountains, near the reservoirs and in the middle of the great Hudson Valley!

    If you are inclined to spend any time in NY state you might want to detour across the Adirondack mountains (park land)... for example there is a ferry across from Vermont... and down thru the Catskill mountains (another park) ... I think there might be another Cagiva rider in these parts also.

    Message me ahead of time with your ETA and contact info...etc, and we can try to connect (if I'm around).

    Have a good ride!

    If you happen to pass thru VT to catch that ferry, I have a Cagiva GC that I can introduce to your steed. You're also welcome to use my garage for any maintenance needs, and we have plenty of room if you want to spend the night......Best of luck on your journey!

    The question is: to buy or not to buy?

    Is it local?.....

    If it really is in good condition, I'd jump on it if I were you....

    Only $2500 for a Gran Canyon in good condition --- that is a great price for a great ride!

    I have to know more about this machine....since I got my KTM 990 SM-T, I have been wavering about whether to sell my Gran Canyon or what to do with it, and I REALLY like the initial concept/idea of this!!!

    Hey guys, does any of you recognise the racks on this bike? The owner couldn't tell...

    Looks like Givi. I think they're out of production.

    Thank you.

    Now, has any of you compared the TDM850 and the GC? These are the two bikes I have to decide between.

    FWIW, I had a TDM 850 which I sold to acquire my GC. The TDM was a great reliable bike, but the vertical twin of the TDM just sounds so dead and plain compared to that Ducati V-twn. The TDM was more fiddly than the GC for oil changes, but the GC makes up for that in spades with the PITA rear cylinder valve adjustments. Oddly, the guy I sold my TDM to contacted me recently to tell me he just sold the TDM to purchase a GC.

    Just tell me the guys # and you can have my TDM...:rofl

    No, kidding, but that is a great price on a GC. I will get one someday myself. :ricky

    Nope...I just can't make up my mind. Few days ago I found a beautiful Navigator. Now I'm really screwed.

    This is in south/central Washington state, east of the Cascades.

    Had an unbelievably beautiful ride up Highway 142 along the Klickitat river. I need to put a GoPro on my bike and film that someday.
