Should I buy a 2005 LT?
So, this bike is local, a 2005 with just over 30,000 miles, light yellow metallic (not my fave color, but liveable), and looks to be in good shape. It's at a local HD dealer, and its apparent they want to get rid of it, as it's $9995 plus fees.
At just about $11,800 out the door, this looks like a heck of a deal. The service records are there, complete with stamps from the local dealer, as well as manuals, extra keys, etc. Few small scratches here and there, but no major signs of trauma. Dealer says 30K service was just completed at local BMW dealer prior to trade-in. Skins are mid-life ME880's in good looking shape.
For reference, I'm an RT-P guy right now, as my commuter, but am looking at the luxo-barge as a 2-up toy for the weekends with the wifey. I'm a pretty proficient wrench with the RT, but it doesn't look like the LT is quite as accessible, although still self-wrenchable for the really determined.
The options are anti-theft system with central locking, 6 disc changer, and heated seats, as far as I can see.
