Lightbulb Good Thinking!

I don't use one, but that's a very good idea.

Of course if some little girl comes along and takes the scrunchy--------

I always preferred the ribbons that say "Must Remove Before Flight".

But who'd want to steal an LT?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That is an extremely good question, all kidding aside. Most bike thieves toss a bike into a van or pickup and drive off. Try THAT with an LT.

Yeah. I'm not saying an LT can't be stolen, but most thieves are after quick, low risk, high value bikes. A sport bike that you can easily pick up with a guaranteed market for used parts is much more tempting to thieves than a behemoth such as ours.

Unless you're selling off rear drives and trunk latches, of course.
