Bye, bye, LT

Two weeks ago I traded my LT for an R1200RT and I'm really pleased -- after adding the Ohlins. The loss of 250 pounds is a remarkable difference. Now, if I can ever get the BMW Biker Chick as comfortable on the back as she was on the LT.....

I have had my 99LT since new and though a fine machine that meets almost all my needs for motorcycling the new RT is luring me away. I had a 98 RT before going to the LT and I miss the light handling and in my opinion a more fun machine to ride. The options for the RT are comparable to the LT now and with the exception of not being quite as comfy for the passenger as the LT I think I may have to switch. Anyone interested in a low mileage LT, 35,000, nearly new tires, well maintained......
