Welcome on board.

LT... what's that? No one here ever heard of such a beast except that one guy who traded it for a Miata... said he was down sizing...

Enjoy, you will get a lot of info here.

If you can afford it, go for the LT. No comparison between it and your current ride. Thanks for coming to the site too! You'll find a LOT of information, a lot of guys who want to help and have a lot of fun making some new friends. See you around!

Read...

read...read and then read some more.

I learned more about my LT in 2 weeks here on the forum then over a year of ownership. Just read the current posts, use the search option to look into issues or concerns and then go buy your LT.

Just remember..LT either stands for Light Truck, or is Looney Tune.....I forget.

Talking Welcome

This gang has good insight about the machines, places to ride, and all kinds stuff related to staying both alive and happy riding these beasts. I rode my LT for four years and loved it. I had virtually no problems with it. Just fell in love with the GT power to weight reality and HAD to have it.

Good luck with your decision.

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.

You have the fever and have registered here and posted, your done.


LT is the best motorcycle around. My current LT is the longest and most miles I have place on a motor. And still counting. Just did a round trip to Alaska in June, worth 12060 miles. I would do it again on this motor.

I have a R1200C and and a R1200RT. Two entirely different bikes with, in my opinion, unique missions. The "C" is a great local day cruiser for me. The "RT" is my solo cross country machine. Performance of the two reflect their mission statements.

Greetings and welcome to the jungle!

You have about a good month or so worth of reading just to get through the LT forum, alone.
