I totally disagree with the above statement, I was perfectly happy with my 2002 LT,
unfortunately she was totaled in a collision with an Elk.
The very first thing I noticed about the 2005 was how much more power it had
and how much better it handled than the 2002,
I didn't care for the new dash at first but now I don't mind anymore,
love the power centerstand,
never had any problems with the 2005,
replaced a final drive bearing on the 2002,
no big deal $400 (dealer) and I left on a ten state trip the next day.
To the ones that only have negative things to say about the LT,
I say bullsh*t, with over 300,000 BMW miles on my butt
(and just as many miles on other brands)
my 2005 is BMW number six for me
and by far the best motorcycle I've ever had.
