Sorry for digging up this old thread (well, no I'm not, I wasn't registered here when it was active, and I feel an urgent need to post here now
Just ordered Darius' relocated driver and passenger boards for my LT. I think they'll be a huge benefit on our long days as my buddy and I tour to Alaska this summer. He's picking up an '09 LT tomorrow, the lucky bastage. I have to "live with" my '01, which I'm already in love with.
I, for one, didn't buy the LT to see how far I can push it in the twisties. I bought it for comfort on the long haul. I do appreciate the performance of the LT already though and frankly can't wait to scrape my new boards
I just don't see the fun in wrestling the LT around all day long though - something more nimble fits the bill much better.
The guys above making the Harley comments listen up... When I want to go do some peg grinding, I get ON
my HD (V-Rod). On that, I can keep up with litre sport bikes in the twisties, due to the superior low speed acceleration of the revolution motor. For you guys that like to lean, go ride a V-Rod - I guarantee ear-to-ear grins. And no, I do not have and do not look for tatted-up 400 lb pillions. Nor do I wear all the "Harley" gear, or a do-rag, wallet-with-chain, or chaps with my A$$ hanging out of them. Us V-Rodders are pretty much HD outcasts, which is fine with me.
OK, rant is over. Thanks for listening
