Trading in ?

Thinking about trading in my 2003 R1200C Montana with 8000 miles on it for a 2005 LT with 17000 on it. Test drove the bike, I like it. Any input would be welcome.First timer to the site, Thanks.

You will probably be impressed.

If you take your SO for a test drive, she will probably be sold...

You can't beat the weather protection offered by the LT, nor the passenger comfort.

Too late to warn you about the "test ride".. tsk, tsk, tsk.

Gilles is telling you straight up.... if your SO (significant orator/other) rides, you are "done".

There are quite a few "posts" along these lines... search for "newbie"...

Meanwhile, c'mon and ask specific questions so we can address them rather than guessing..

For myself, coming from a lifetime of HD's (ok.. not a "lifetime", only 38 years), I'll never go back.
