Positive LT Post
I purchased my 2000 LT over two years ago with the intention of using it as a rally bike. I wanted the right tool for the job, and the LT fit the bill. I rode her in several 10 and 32 hour duration rallies and was always impressed.
However, I wanted a bigger rally challenge and signed up for the six day Butt Lite 8 rally. I was concerned a 16 year old LT with 122,000 miles would be a liability, but the LT performed flawlessly! I attribute the LT's performance to the mechanical guidance and tools provided by forum members. I rode over 5,200 miles during the rally on some of America's most spectacular Pacific Northwest roads. I even had some gravel roads to contend with to bag a few bonuses. Some of the more memorable roads were to Fire Gorge, Hell's Canyon, Dee Wright Observatory, Yellowstone, Sun Valley to Stanley Idaho, Crater Lake, and western Montana. In total, 8,275 miles were ridden in 12 days and the LT did not complain once.
What an experience, what a great bike!
