Epithany - It Ain't A Cruiser!
While riding up Highway 33, a nice twisty mountain road, I was still trying to get comfortable through the curves on the LT. Curves felt abrupt, and unsettled. It snapped from upright to lean. I changed my riding position, and suddenly the whole bike transformed from a luxury cruiser to a luxury sport bike! I had been sitting back, upright, arch of foot on peg, and trying to punch it through corners like the Moto Guzzi. When I shifted my feet and put the ball of my foot on the peg, and leaned forward into the tank more like a crotch rocket position (but not extreme) suddenly it started falling into corners smoothly, held a line tightly, and felt like a million bucks.
OMG - what a bike!
