Love my LT

Last night when I was coming home from getting gas in my LT I decided to take the long way home. It was a beautiful night for a ride, 78 miles later I pulled in to my driveway with a big smile on my face! Ahh...

Re: Love my LT

I know just how you filed. Took my wife & kids to brunch on Sunday and by 3 P, we were off on a 200 Mi ride to SW Wisconsin and back. Beautiful day and beautiful bike. Beautiful passenger too.

Re: Love my LT

Most on this forum know the feeling.

One of my nicest rides was late evening, riding south on a very empty I-75 with the moon rising on one side and the sun setting on the other. 200 miles of bliss..... felt like the cockpit of a jet.....

You're near by. What was your route? I love riding in that area. Maybe reply on the midwest forum if you get a chance.

Thanks,

I agree. A large percentage of my miles are unplanned...

Re: Love my LT

I use the LT to ride daily to work. Most days are good, but as expected some days are not as good as others at work. But the ride back on the LT, could be 15 mins or an hour, ensures that when I am home I am smiling and happy Love my LT
