Like a fine wine...

The LT seems to get better with age/mileage
My current LT (no 9) is the highest mileage LT I've had at 45,000 miles. It starts, runs and rides better than all the others. The gearbox is gorgeous, slick and quiet. It seems the bikes improves as it gets older!

Re: Like a fine wine...

My 03 had just rolled over 75,000 when I totalled it. I did all the service on it and was getting ready to do another 75,000...........

Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.
