I found my LT...again
In November I traded in my LT for a FJR at my Santa Teresa, NM Yamaha dealer.
Right about the first of the year, much to my surprise, they sold it. A few weeks later, while at the dealership visiting with the sales staff, I met the man who bought it. He and his wife just happened to ride up on my old LT while I was there. He stopped in just for kicks, as I had. The new owner wasn't very friendly with me and I thought that odd. His wife was quite talkative and said the LOVED the LT. If I'd bought a used bike from a dealer and met the former owner I'd be all over him for a complete history...or at least ask for a contact in case I had questions.
Fast forward to today. Wife and I ride up to Las Cruces, NM (40 mi) on the FJR and decide to stop by the Honda dealer. We ride up and sitting in the Used Bike Lineup is my 2000 Basalt LT (same stickers and mods). He kept the bike just about 2 months and put only 1400 mi on it. I wonder if no dealer within 4 hours drive had anything to do with him ditching it ? (that was my only reason)
