Saying Goodbye to the LTE

After a year of dual experiences....perfect bike for long distance touring/twisty riding....absolute beast for around town, two-up, Michigan pothole riding....I am selling my '02 LTE. It's like taking an Indy car to the grocery. I rarely get the chance to ride her like she is designed to be ridden so I am going to let her go to someone who will.

Thanks to all who helped me learn about her and work out some kinks. I hope you continue to enjoy your K's and ride safely.

2002 K1200 LTE (selling)
2000 Valkyrie 1500CF Interstate
2005 Bully (sold)

Re: Saying Goodbye to the LTE

I am keeping my '00 Valkyrie and bought an '06 Ultra Geezer Glide. Lower, lighter almost all the bells and whistles of the LTE. No heated anything (except for lower legs) and no Nav. But tons of Farkle opportunities. And my new hobby can be re-tightening all the bolts that come loose after a ride....

Good Luck!!

Plan your passing car or truck moves very carefully.

My old 2009 ultra classic 96 cu.wouldn't get out of it's own way above 80 mph.

Re: Saying Goodbye to the LTE

I also had an 06 Ultra Classic and enjoyed it. The only problem I had was the brakes or the lack of brakes as compared to the LT. All of this being said at the end of the day it was one of the most comfortable bikes in the world, but I liked my LT better and she won out.

Re: Saying Goodbye to the LTE

I have ridden my friends ultra glide a few times, and that thing seems way more beasty than the elegant nimble LT. For example, you don't have to think about backing into spaces with the LT, just shove it in reverse and back out....kind of baffling to me that someone would consider the LT more beast than an Ultra....I ride mine to the store all the time, it doesn't seem to be a problem...
