Re: Lt Purchase
I bought a 2003 LT with only 16,000 miles for $8,000 a couple of months ago. My local dealer entered the VIN into the BMW system and was able to see that it had received all scheduled maintenance even though I was buying in from someone in another state. The bike had a few very small nicks and scratches from being dropped, but was otherwise in great condition.
If you get an LT, I strongly recommend you get something to secure the mirrors to the bike. I lost one when I hit a deep pothole riding early one morning before daylight. It's $600+ for a new one at a dealership. Fortunately I was able to find one through the BMWMOA forum for a lot less. I then bought Mirror Rescue cables from Bob's BMW for $16.95 for a pair. My mirrors are now secure. The problem is common enough that the new LTs come with retention straps already installed.
