our Journey for a summer trip

I got two weeks off from work this summer and my wife did too. I asked her if she wanted to take a trip on the LT? She thought that would be a good idea. I made some plans. We went to Wisconsin, rode the Manitowac to Luddington ferry. then to Indiana, Canada, through Toronto and around the East end of Lake Ontario, down into New York, across Pennsylvania, onto Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and back to Illinois. total miles traveled was 2725 miles. The LT ran great, smooth and lots of people liked to see it. We saw some beautiful parts of the country.

my only regret was the seat on the LT. I need to get a different seat. Any suggestions?

Re: our Journey for a summer trip

The Airhawk pad has worked for me, not cheap but worth it.

Post some pictures from the trip cause

Re: our Journey for a summer trip

See my "Seat Thread", as I just went through the same things after a 3,400 miles trip and another 1,750 mile trip earlier last month. I ordered a Russell Day Long solo seat with leather inserts, a driver backrest, and recovered passenger backrest to match. The Thread has several pix of seats from different vendors. Good luck on your choice!!
