Did not bite yet!!!
I have been visiting the site almost everyday and ebay and other sites looking at some LT's ( mostly around 2004 or 2005) and 2 2006's based on the pricing and low millage!! ( I still ride my 93 K1100lt) and love it, this is the model that is bulletproof and the only thing in 14 years is the ABS light (handlebars) that flashes all the time!!( just turn the switch off!!)
The prices seem to vary quite a bit on the same years!!! From 11,500 to 16,000 for 2005's with around 14,000 miles. Hard to make a decision ( trying to get this maybe done before the winter up here in Montreal. I most likely would purchase a US bike based on the pricing on some Canadian bikes!! ( savings around 3,000 to 6,000) which is a lot to me.
Because of the low mileage on the 2005's, what would I have to look at for service and parts that would need to be replaced!!!( not oil and tires!!)
I have been looking at helmets also and most likely will choose the HJC Symax II helmets for both of us!! Just wondering if anyone has installed headsets ( what types??) and how good are they? pricing would also help.
Any help would be well appreciated!!!!
I am getting confused!!~!
