My LT is my only transportation, although my wife has a car. I have had issues in the 4 years I've owned the bike, including but not limited to; Engine seals, exhausts, shocks, leaking slave, QD fuel leak, etc. No final drive issues. (Knocks on wood.) The only time it needed to be towed was with the fuel leak.
So, occasionally I've had to get a ride to work with my wife which means going in a couple of hours early, and leaving a half hour early. Amazing what one can get done early in the morning when no one is there yet. Not a huge deal, and fortunately I have a good dealer that understands that it is my only transportation and will get my bike done within a day, normally. There was a one week period, when as the tech said, everyplace this thing could leak is leaking.
Still I wouldn't have it any other way. Every time I think I am fed up with problems, they get them fixed and I ride a long distance with my wife on back and I can't imagine going back to Harley, or any other bike.
