Biggest mistake ever

Hi all, well last weekend I finally sold my Lt after 3 years of threatening to do it. As the new owner rode off on it I knew I had made a big mistake, but I was starting to get quite a bit of pain in my chest and back due to an old car crash injury( the annoying thing the crash wasn't my fault). Only once has a bike left such a big hole in my life and that was a Kawasaki z1 when I was 21. Will I get another Lt the answer has to be no it was getting too heavy for me when fully loaded, on the move it was fine but low speed was the problem. So guys enjoy yours and think long and hard about selling it.
Ride safe Cheers Dave

Re: Biggest mistake ever

Check out an RT or similar class bike. Just as comfortable for long rides, yet not as physically demanding as the 800-pound Light Truck.
Been there, done that.

Time for a R1200GS. I have the GS adventure. It's my second bike of choice.
