New to BMW and as I said in another post, it has made me VERY conscious about gear. Now that Fall is finally getting here, I am in my Leather jacket more then my Olympia Mesh, and I miss the Olimpia, but then I digress....
The LT takes me everywhere faster then anything I have owned in the last ten years. Just because those ten years were Harley's got nothing to do with it
Seriously, the more I ride it the more amazed at the power and speed in all but, absolute silence this machine delivers. I really think that is part of it, the silence and smoothness fools you, but not the radar gun
I am also now a high RPM convert. Third gear and about 6-7 grand is way cool. This, and my love of going over a ton when every I have a chance, has made me way more susceptible to speeding tickets
I think I need to get one of those Valentine 1 I see mentioned. Here we got 65 after congested areas, and everyone groups up, and does 70-75. So I was always taught you go faster then traffic, or slower then traffic, to stay out of trouble.
Guess which one it is
