I'm riding my '06 LT this week, after a long period of snow and ice on the roads (the only things that keep me away from riding!).
I am amazed by how good this bike is, expecially with few degrees above 0°C: I reach my office in the morning, after 40 minutes and 65Km, and I'm warm and relaxed... no frozen fingers, no dripping nose, no aching back or shoulders
My collegues stare at me and ask: "Don't feel cold"? and I'm happy to answer: "Not at all!"
I only have a couple of issues where maybe you can advise.
FIrstly, my right wrist is somehow weak, due to an accident I had back in 1993. The LT requires a lot of effort to open the gas (why?) and this is causing some pain in the long run. Thank God I have the cruise control on the LT and use it as often as I can, but it's not always possible.
Is there a way to fix this issue?
Second point: I'm getting a lot of air on the neck when I'm at 80-90mph, due to the backpressure caused by the windscreen. I'm not keeping the windscreen all up (the back-pressure is way too much if I do, my helmet gets slapped forward) but with 0 to 4°C the windscreen is required to stay high anyway. Is it normal to get all this pressure from the rear? It's causing me some slight aching on the following day (a total of 80 minutes of freezing air per day, blown on your neck, is a good challenge for any riding gear).
What's the best way to fix this problem? I'm 5'10" tall, it this can be of any help.
