I apologize if I have missed a similar post before, but after almost two years of researching, reading, and learning (most of it inside this site, which I very much appreciate) I am close to buying my first BMW bike. I really want an LT, but my biggest concern is with the flux the LT is currently in with a new model coming out. My question is......what is the anticipated ability to get parts for an older version LT, if the new LT is so different as is projected? What has me worried is the apparent attempt to use up all of their existing inventory on the 2009 LT, and the CCR info. that it is a possibility they could skip a year. I know rumors are worth nothing, but does anyone have an opinion on future availability of parts after the new model comes out. My other option will be to go with an RT instead.
