Just How Rare Are The LTs?
Went to Lansdale Bike Night last night, which is billed as the Sturgis of the East, a slight exaggeration, but none the less, they do get about 30-40,000 people for a one night event.
Reason I went was the pulled pork sandwiches. A man's gotta eat you know. Two sandwiches one pulled pork, the other a burnt end, two walk arounds, and it's time to go home.
The people that did stop at look at my bike made basically the same comments, "Man, that's a big bike." " I didn't know BMW made motorcycles." "That's huge!".
Anyhow, all those people did come on motorcycles, and as I walked around the entire area, and saw perhaps, 10,000 motorcycles (They are parked on both sides of Main St. for about 1/2 mile, and parked on both sides of every side street in town), the only LT I saw was mine.
There were a respectful number of sport bikes (no BMWs), and a handful of Gold wings, but only one LT.
Now, one LT in 10,000 bikes tells me the LT may be the best kept secret in the motorcycle community.
Is that ratio about right, 1LT per 10,000 bikes?
