Someday, I'll get in trouble

There I was, ride'n back to the office, at the stop light, when going cross to me was another Mauve LT - with the bigest trailer I've ever seen on a bike. This thing looked like it belonged behind an F-350 (well, ok - slight exageration).

Of course, I'm in the wrong lane, but after some fancy turns here and there and get'n caught at a few lights I finally catch up to Denis from Florida on his 2001 LT. Denis is on his way from home in FL to a black powder shoot in Cody Wyoming. Tells me his trailer is 'fulla lead'. Says he had to get the LT cuz his Harley at home wouldn't pull the trailer.

In any case - Denis had never heard of this site. Says he'll check in. Was curious to hear about the 'brown wire' and so many folks doing their own maintenance.

And I got to see my 3rd LT (besides my own). Gonna have to do 'sighting' tags like the fighter pilots do for shoot downs. One Champaign '06, Wyorock's silver and now an '01 Mauve. Only other Mauve 'sides mine I've seen. (yea, he's run'n Metzlers at 42/48 too )

Too cool.

If you see me chase'n ya down - I'm not gonna swipe your triskets. Just wanna say "Hi!"

Since there are so few LT's out there it's fun to get to chat with other riders. We used to have a template somewhere for biz cards with the site URL, and that you can personalize and print yourself. Then if you see one and the owner is not around you can tuck a card into his seat.

Blessings!

Mmm, I shore coulda been cornfuzed that's for sure. But it was an almost white LT with the chrome handle 'cross the tail trunk back side. Gonna haffta go look at some piccys. See what kinda Yellow the '06s are.

But, more likely I've got the model year wrong than the color.

Uh, or was that *you* I accosted at the Shell station?

Same thing happened to me over the weekend. Spotted a guy while gassing up so couldn't go chasing after him. I am afraid the guy might freak anyway. Only my second spotting too.
