Re: I'm very tempted please tell me I'm nuts.
After what I've gone through with the LT, I won't consider a bike that hasn't been out for at least 3-4 years. Faulty computer programming for the engine, no crash pan, rear disk change, defective starter relay, FD failures, faulty slave cylinder design, leaking engine and trany seals, faulty low beam design, faulty design on the trunk latch, rubber brake lines that leak and having to modify the speedometer so that it actually displays the speed I'm going.
When I bought the LT I believed the mythology of "precision engineering", that unlike Harley I wouldn't have to buy after market parts to get her to run at full potential and not having to do any major work on the bike. At least it doesn't leak oil. Well come to think of it, mine leaks oil from the engine, about one drip after riding. :-)
