Re: Getting LT Next Week
I too lusted after the LT I saw when I first went to the web site. Even Brought in the dealer on his day off to show me around, after I drove almost 200 miles only to find the dealer was closed on monday. The LT was beyond my means at the time and the CLC (silver) was what I had come to evaluate. Bought it too. 24K mi later she jumped in front of a car that was riding with no lights in the early AM. totaled both car and bike. I walked away with injured foot (not serious) and cracked rib. took ins. payment and purchased 04 CL that had a soft side stand mount and after three tries to fix it and the loss of one of the better riding seasons, BMW of NA traded me almost even for an 05 LT. I guess it does prove that good things do come to those who wait.
The CLC was a great bike and the 04 with the duel plugs eliminated the hesitation the 03 had that probably was the reason the car caught me.
You are going to really appreciate the LT.!!!!!
