Greetings. just got back of the 3 days in the Appalachian mountains. 2 up, "pulling a trailer." My bike and I are undefeatable, end of discussion.
On the Cherohala Skyway, I could overtake anything, 2 up, that did not have a bimmer emblem. I have to admit that one of the spaceship looking Victories took a little while, but once I was out front, he almost killed himself trying to keep up. I showed him what the back of an LT looks like, and then left him in the dust quickly.
The LT is happy up there. "No traffic jams, no stop lights." I left the trailer at the lodge on day 2 and we let it roll. I met some buddies "a metric cruiser, and 2 HDs" It became obvious that I was the "true King of the Road" "Sorry Guys"
Two of my buddies shop in the big and tall section and could snap me like a twig in autumn off the bike, but on the road, I can, and did abuse them repeatedly.
The wife of 33 years doesnt understand it, but I am the champ. Undisputed
Hat's off to her. She didnt flinch, freak, or say a word during the peg scrapes. I did hear about later though
Disclaimer. No one was hurt in this ride or post. I really dont care what you think about this post or any other. If you "waxed me" on the road, I will just smile and try harder next time. PS, I've owned a Harley, and put 20k on a GL1800. I believe the LT will out pace any bike, 2 up, for great distances. Next spring, I might not be the champ, but right now, I am, I am.
