I'm not too certain you really know what "the mountains" means!! If you're riding in the Appalatchians, and think you're in "the mountains", you have GOT to make plans to go west, young man, got west!!
The areas around here are, arguably, some of the best there are, but the riding in the mountain states is a whole lot different! Deals Gap, Mt Mitchel, and the BRP are great riding, but Pikes Peak, Wolf Creek Pass, and CO 50 thru Silverton, Blue Lake and Monarch Pass are without descriptive words.
The LT will handle them all, 2-up with luggage, and never complain!
Happy, safe riding!!
