I was a few weeks before 40 last year when I bought my LT. Bought it for several reasons, biggest was that it was less expensive than a comparable Gold WIng. I do like the new gen Gold Wing. At anyrate, other reasons were that it was sporty enough to ride aggressively on occasion, the wife likes a comfy ride and she sure did a lot of work to help me get back to riding after my crash, so my choice of LT was partially to give back to her. And now that I have had it for almost a year, I like it better every ride. I don;t know that I could live without cruise and electric windshield again.
And I wanted something that looked like George Jetson would ride it, i.e. futuristic and not retro. Sorta the Anti-harley. Before that remark starts a war, I do think Harley makes some beautiful bikes. They are just not my style, or lifestyle. Don;t wanna be one of the "masses" and a BMW sure fulfills that.
I thought I was the youngest LT owner, but guess I'm not as special as I thought....lol
