Got three dealers within 60 miles of home. Home is not what I am worried about. It is on a trip I worry, I just want to get home, warranty or not.
Even if I broke down in front of a dealer, I like the option of having the most vulnerable part of the LT an Over Night away.
Not a gripe really, just stating what has allowed me to get past the phobia of this well documented flaw of LT's, and allows me to truly enjoy it for the machine is.
Hell a 400 dollar 0 mile drive off an 08 bike from Flea Bay is really nothing in the scheme of things in how this bike has parted my money from me.
Between the 4 piece Corbin, the J-Pegs, the Garmin 2820, the Centec Fuse panel, the Jiffy Tite Alum QD, the C-Bailey #2 -6 Clear and Ice Blue, the upgraded shifter linkage from a person on this site, the Slave Cylinder weep hole kit from another member, EBC rear rotor and pads, Grip Puppies, Big Daddy Tie downs, Floor Jack, Suburban Peg Lowering kit, upgraded rear speakers, and the Three Piece Hyper Pro Shock/Steering upgrade, it is nothing more then a ripple in a very large pond of money.
That does not bother me in the least as I choose to spend that money.
Getting home off the side of the road is my #1 concern. I hope I never have to use that package. All I need to do is drill a weep hole to help save the clutch, and ride a bunch of miles to get some faith in the bike.
And if it ever becomes technologically and monetarily feasible that I can keep a spare heart in the old freezer, you can bet I will.
