Key thang to do here is; make sure the 4 bikes sold before yours have the final drive fail on 'em --- then you can pick from the next 96 and have no worries!!!
Being a leetle sarcastical here, butt if I read all the cage, truck, scoot, ATV, tractor, bicycle, bus, etc forums and discounted all the failed 'sumpthin's', I'd prolly be walkin'; course then, I'd read about all the hip replacements on the excercise forums and that'd put me on the couch - hoping the bolster don't fall off while I'm stayin' safe!!!
Seriously, you wanna ride a damn fine bike and know what it's like, come on down to Boerne and take ole Toad out for a spin in the Tejas Hill Country. Then you can read that final drive thread 'til the cows come home, and realize there are 35,000+ LTs in country and lookee how many posts are in that thread!!
- join the family what is havin' way much fun. We'd love to have the newest LT on the road show up at the Grifster's gearage for some help doin' the tech session dance.
