I no longer use the LT around town - ONLY for trips over 100 miles. I know we are fortunate to have this option, but we do.
Several weeks ago, I bought my wife a 2009 Spyder, and had to try it out, of course.
Parking lots are no longer an issue. Stop & go traffic [lane splitting is a fast ticker here], not an issue. Ripping around the country roads for a bit of R&R - a hoot. I must say, that if I have to clear a toy out, it won't be the Spyder....
I've looked at the other touring bikes - no thanks, and I wouldn't consider a "sport bike". So I'll keep the LT until it rusts away, and play on the new toy...
Just my $0.02.
