"I agree, Ron. It may not be gyroscopic, butt instead hygroscopic, microscopic, telescopic, or just plain scopic, butt more twist in the grip or sumpthin', helps me git around the bend."
Now thats a great lead in for a high school science class!! arharh, gawd thats funny...
I don't understand either, did a woman design the LT??
Never heard it run, only saw it in person once before in a parking lot at work, never thought about buying one...it took the wife 10 SECONDS to say "this is it"...and I'm sure she was waiting only so I thought she actually thought about what she was saying.
Didn't matter, she made the decision in the showroom from the pillion seat of that sliver 02 sitting under the spotlight. She's never looked back either, still loves it after 126k miles.
And thats on the stock seat!
Regarding drops, my approach...don't worry about it. I've dropped my bike so many times I've lost count. I only did damage once when I lowsided (bent the brake lever). Its made to drop. It ain't made to catch on the way down however, let it go
If doing a u-turn is a problem at all, I revert back to the y-turn, much easier on iffy roads/dirt,etc. You'll come to grips with it over time..and miles.
