Re: Question re: standard features
I have the '01 LTC which includes the above as well as heated seats, grips and backrest for the passenger. It also has the Brembo ABS brakes front and rear. Because it is old enough the brake systems are independent, not coupled. It has only 100 hp (which for me is plenty). It also has a manual centerstand. It is surprisingly easy to place on the stand without the electro-hydraulics.
If you have never ridden one of these monsters (sweethearts) you are in for a treat! If big sophisticated drop dead gorgeous unbelievably good handling touring motorcycles are your thing you had better make sure you have cash in hand or financing available when you ride one. Making the jump will consume your life until you finally get one. They are that good.
If the right one had shown up when I was buying I would have opted for the LTE which includes the rider/passenger comm system. Not a show stopper (obviously) as I use one of the aftermarket bluetooth systems which works flawlessly and no cables!
I only regret that I have to work for a living so I can't tour all the time!
