Cool possible lt styling hint

i had my two bikes nose to tail & saw a very interesting thing. some of the styling is very similar. wind screen shape, mirrors,fuel tank,cooling vents and the way your legs tuck into the body. the front fenders are almost identical.
thought you might find it interesting

Re: possible lt styling hint

I can say with 100% certainty that BMW copied MY little guy - the R11 Vergasser - when they designed the LT. They just added bigger wheels, 3 more cylinders and oh - about 700 lbs!
