Thumbs up Corny, but true

The LT is the best ride I've experienced. It's fun, comforable, and gives me the false sense of security I need when riding in auto traffic. I'm still riding high from a great ride ... again! It's wonderful to find your true ride, no matter which BMW model ... Just Joe

John

Was that a direct quote or something?

No Joe. I was pulling your leg. I know you think the GT is the best ride ever.

I used to feel that way on my Vstrom. I would rather be on it in traffic than in my truck. I like the visibility I have on a bike. I don;t have the pillars and such obstructing my view. Not enough seat time on LT to say, but even with it's size, folks still appear to not notice it. Of course, in my YELLOW pickup, they see it and think " I can make it in front of them", instead of "Hey, yellow truck; I better wait".

Yes I loved my RT, but dumped her like a rock for my new KS. The KS is the best ride ever but my GS I really love, and thats the best ride ever. I just can't decide, guess I'll have to keep them both.

I leave town for a few days.....okay, 8 months, and you go out and get a new bike! Here I am going without a GS

Quite a difference from the RT in the power department

Seriously John, congratulations on the new ride. As you are well aware, it's a hoot!
