Re: Final Drive... Other choices
When I sold the 1st LT in Miami (sucks to ride an 800 lb bike that likes to be sporty in the flatlands down there), the wife told me to get a roadster. After reviewing all comparators in the price point I was at, I chose the Honda S2000. More power than the BMW and comparable Audi, Mazda, etc, etc plus costs less. And great reviews. Also, like the K12, not everyone has one and that appeals to me for some reason (that's part of why I dread even thinking HD. That and I don't have any pirate clothes).
I found a used Suzuka Blue with all options (xm, sporty shifter, wheel locks, and removable hardtop). It was a blast to drive... I got tired of it after 10 months. I'm just not up to the stiff sportiness without amenities. Sold it and got an Infiniti (again, faster than all comparators: BMW , Acura, Lexus, etc). Can't say not everyone's got one, though...
I'm not sure what I'll do. Chances are the parts will come in within 20 days, so I won't be able to invoke the Lemon Law. With only 7000 (6500 at failure) miles, I should be able to, though. I was disappointed to see that the GT's and RT's have the same problem. It's amazing.
I'm not worried about being stranded somewhere, I'm worried it may go without any audible or tactile signal, I'll take a nice right and down she could go. And I'm just tired of dealing with it.
Anybody got any kool-aid? I think mines wearing off.
