Re: I must be addicted..................

Do you have them all - That would classify as an addiction...

Born to be wild so why not

No, I didn't keep them all....even I'm not that daft!

I do think they are the best bike in the world though.

You are in good company, and perhaps in the lead. I thought I was pretty deep at number four!

Re: I must be addicted..................

I must be slow or something. It took me three other bikes before I got an LT....... A friend of mine said "you got the wrong bike" (referring to my Honda VTX1800 Retro), "you should have gotten the LT" (referring to the fact I bought the VTX first). I told him I got it right because I actually own both bikes - if I had the LT to start with I probably would only have one bike......!!

Having said that, it took it for a good run last night after lots of mods like weep hole, full brake and clutch flush, clutch bleeder mod, installed Starcom1 intercom with integrated volume control, on-off to helmet switch, aux-in integration, Zumo 660 install, 2-way GMRS with PTT mounted, refill rear spring reload adjuster, replace coolant and a whole lot more (phew), and all I can say is wow! What an awesome machine.....!!

These are all spaced over a period of 10 years though so not toooooo exessive!
(During that time I've also owned 9 x Cobra replicas, 7 x GT40 replicas and 5 x Triumph TR6's one of which I still own (well...it has a V8 fitted)
