Re: Jerking handlebars sometimes on my LT.
Mike, After a collision like the one you had this summer, it could be that your front suspension is damaged. If you are able to take the bike to a BMW dealer, you would want to have all the front suspension parts checked out throughly before riding the bike again. Or if you can find another LT, you can check the clearance measurments from one bike to another to see if the front end geometry may be incorrect. My one question about the 60mph handlebar wiggle, did this occurr on deceleration? or were you accellerating? Was there any damage to the front wheel or tire from the accident. Have you checked the front wheel by lifting it off the ground and spinning it and looking for any abnormalities in the front wheel/tire? As far as your accident, looking at that road, I would imagine the wheels getting stuck trying to get over that height difference. Hopefully you were not injured in the accident.
