From an 05 LT to a 07 Dual Sport
I had a great time here exchanging LT Info with many fine folks and may well check in from time to time but I have sold my LT and after demo-ing several bikes and looking at several different brands I have purchased a new 2007 Suzuki DL1000. I could not make myself go back to HD nor a Goldwing.
The V-Strom is very comfortable for me sitting straight up with exceptional handling and bullet proof mechanicals.
I won't have the amazing array of comfort items on the LT - But with
a little farkling $$ for heated grips and GIVI bags, etc I will be set.
The reason I did not chose another BMW are well known - BMW's lack of addressing a significant amount of mechanical failures across the broad spectrum of models and ever shrinking dealerships to support a highly sophisticated machine is well documented.
Best wishes to you all -
