Re: Love/Hate relationship 2005 LT
Wouldn't ride anything but the LT; and even if I tried to switch, the back-seater would kill me in my sleep.
Having said that, I was just having simmilar thoughts about the "one-size-fits-all" LT the other day. No different from, say, shoes or clothing sold by big stores: take the most average/common sizes, and stock them, as that is what will sell in largest numbers. Beemer must have used a model of an average German dude, 5'10, 180lbs, average legs, smallish hands. So far I had to get Grip Puppies, as my big paws were killing me with standard grips. I've got a peg-lowering kit on its way, and if that doesn't unscrunch me, will look at boards. Then start looking at seat options.
Law of averages, I guess - we're all different and, what fits one, may need adjusting for another.
Congrats on the new ride!
