I have now had the LT about 5 weeks and last week I made my most significant ride so far.
The first few weeks I did lots of short rides practiceing stopping, parking, putting on centre stand.
I have also changed all of the oils and the oil filter.
The ride I made last week was to Sutton on sea Lincs about 200 miles each way, I started of on the Thursday a boiling hot day caught some traffic on the M25 and A1 got there in about 5 Hours with a stop at Peterborough.
One problem apart from being to hot was a rattling/vibration at about 2000rpm whilst trickling along.
Stayed with my friend overnight and left for home at 09.30am.
Fine until reaching Peterborough then stuck in stop start traffic until the services.
Then on the A1 fine until M25 which was stop start all the way to junction 12 where I come of.
It was a nightmare thought I wouldn't make it home.
My overall impression of the bike is whilst moving very good, stop starting in traffic not so good.
I was amazed that until I reached the M25 the MPG was showing 60 per gallon certainly very economical for a big bike.
