Re: A strange problem that I really want to solve
hmmm ya know.. I realized the way my hands move for steering with the LT are far different than with other bikes. What I "learned" was that I was using too much "handlebar input" to keep the bike on track rather than leaning the proper amount.
For example, in a curve/turn, I would actively "steer" the LT... that made for some bad manners.
Now, I try to be very concious that when I am turning, I use the bars ONLY to induce the correct "lean"... and she'll track right on through. I seem to "lean" more than on other bikes to get the LT to corner...
Everyone knows, to "turn" a MC at speed you must lean it.... and that is what I was not allowing to happen.
I know you have no issues with "leaning" bikes... just a thought for you to consider.... it "bit" me..and with the LT's huge lever offered by the long handlebars, it is easy to put a LOT of turning force without noticing.
