Once upon a time, like the first year I owned the LT, a HOG babe asked me outside a bar for a ride so she could hear what a real bike radio sounded like. When we got back to the bar, her boyfriend (HOG groupie), commented that "that beemer is so demasculated (exhaust wise), that he could hear the stereo halfway up the street". His girlfriend said, "yeah, that is by far the nicest, most comfortable bike I have ever been on". Shut him right down. He then proceeded to ask what all the handle bar buttons were for. Bout sheet his panties when I operated the windscreen. Most HOG folks tend not to downplay beemers in public, just Yamakawahonzuki's.. until they get to ride a busa.
