Re: where do you get your accessories?
I agree, start with the vendors who help keep the site going. They will probably know the ins and outs of the LT better than most.
You might also try running searches for the different accessories you are thinking about. You'll get hours' worth of reading from list members who have "been there, done that" with any given product. You may find some tricks that will save you a lot of time, money and aggravation.
I was talking to a list member who was trying to connect an iPod to a 2005 LT. We ran a search while on the phone and found the BMW part number for the cable that is required, and we found an online dealer.
Lots of LT riders seem to like the Valentine radar detectors; I think those are only available factory direct. The neat setup is to install one on the BMR shelf, available from Raffy at Just Ride it Accessories. See the vendor forum.
