Hello all!
I am a new to the forum and while reading about the LT someone happen to mention a video that shows how to pick up the bike? I went searching and looked in the files index but cant find it, can someone direct this newbie to the location?

Arrrgggghhh... I used to have a copy on my hard drive, but I guess it got 'lost' in the big crash this spring....

ANywyas, here is the original thread http://www.bmwlt.net/ubbthreads/show...&Number=172910

The link to the video no longer is valid and I can't find the file on this new version of the site...

Yup, Shawn - I'm having trouble finding a valid link too. Sez Munson's original won't work. I've got it on my hard drive somewhere also, butt too early in the morning yet!! I'll find it tho - stay tuned.

Naturally, the one that ends in .mpg is the video.

NOT SO with that HD and from reading around this forum it appears that the BMW-LT may be very much top heavy like the UltraClassic.
Oh, and from the looks there seems to be a lot to TEX-A-GINS in here too!!
Thanks I so much appreciated it.

Thanks

Well, I thought I would never join the drop club but it happened late last night on a very dark T intersection. I pulled up to the stop sign, put my right foot down and Wow! No ground where it should have been. The LT slowly went over to the right with me struggling mightily to save it. I put everything I had into letting it down gently and voila! I was successful. Now, how was I going to get it up? I turned off the engine, put down the kickstand and positioned myself with my back to the bike on the right side. No matter how I strained, I could not raise it more than a few inches off the ground. I got on my cell phone, called my son who also called two of his friends and in about 20 minutes they were on site with me. Both my son's friends play junior college football as defensive linemen. It took all four of us to get the bike upright from its laid down position. The LT was not lying horizontal to the ground but was actually about ten percent towards being upside down if you can picture it. I was awefully glad there were some very strong young men to help me out. Two guys my age would never have been successful. Anyway, no damage to the bike, just my pride. Now I'm going to be very careful about what the ground looks like before assuming it's right there below the footpegs.

The LT can be ridden just fine at very slow speeds, but you do have to respect it's weight and characteristics. I often won't put a foot down at stop signs, and sometimes at red lights if I see that it's about to change. It just takes practice, and confidence.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
