Hi Joe, I purchased an 05 LT in January of 2006 off Ebay and have put 30,000 miles on so far. I was riding a 1984 Aspencade at the time with 92000 on it nice bike. Anyway I went to Las Vegas on vacation and rented the 1800, the LT and a Ultra Glide I fell in love with the LT and we are still on our honeymoon after two years. The LT does not have the low end torque of the 1800 but rides more like a sport bike. I pull a Time Out Camper trailer two up and have no problems even in the moutains it has alot of power. I see you are in the cold country like me, I am in Northern Michigan and I have PMS bad right now. I have the J&M CB / Intercom and run my GPS and MP/3 player through it, it works fine. If you go this way you will have to by another antenna and CB extension cable to hook it up. It helps if you can do your own maintenance it saves moocho$$$$$ the only thing I don't do is mount the tires I buy off the net. My only advice would be change fluids regularly, final drive oil is cheap and easy to change. I use Amsoil for everything. Farkals I have added, CB/Intercom, GPS, MP3, Custom seat, Trip pegs, Tank bag, Trailer hitch, Timeout Camper, Driving lights, HID low beam, Tall windshield, 30,000 miles of Smiles. It's time to snowblow the driveway AGAIN.
Good Luck and Happy Holidays
