Re: Thinking of a 2001 LT
No bike is immune to breakdowns. No bike I've ever ridden makes me feel the way I do on my LT. It's not like getting married, no life long commitment, no ugly divorce if you decide you don't like it, its a motorcycle, you buy it, you ride it, you sell it if you decide it isn't for you. If you have the opportunity to experience the LT, don't pass it up. If you are looking at an 2001, see if it has brembo on the disk calipers, means it is an early model, and doesn't have the linked brake system, which I prefer. There are so many features on the LT, that it just takes a bit to figure them all out. Just imagine your (ex) goldwing with all the extra features you could add to it, thats the LT standard stuff. I had a GL1800, not a bad bike, but to me kind of boring. so I "divorced" it, and got the LT, made me realize the excitment I had been missing on a motorcycle.
