At least the brakes sound like they came from an LT.

Some of them passages would be a tad narrow for the LT.

Anybody could do that on that little kiddy bike...


You could do it on the LT if you took off the Mirrors, Saddlebags, Windshield, Topcase. And all the rest of the tupperware. You wouldn't want to scratch her up...

Then you could just bulldoze your way through...

Re: so, could YOUR LT do this??

I've always had the most difficulty getting the back end of the LT to hop around like that.
