This is a great forum. I have been able to correct every problem and perform much of the maintenance on my 2000 Lt with the great wealth of information offered here. I look at many of the posters highlighted maps of the states they have covered and say man I can't wait to do that. Got a lot of time, effort, money, and brain power invested in this machine. Two years now and I haven't made it past the Flint Hills or into another state.
Yesterday I went for my first ride on the Light Truck since getting the seats totally redone by Russel. They had me send pictures, weight, and measurements in order to expertly construct a seat that would make this monster rideable. About 1200 bucks worth. It does look good. Went about two hundred miles. Tried the up position, the down position, the back rest up down, back and forth, and off. Stopped and took off the lowered floor boards and put the pegs back on, tried the air hawk seat pad with it back and forth, folded this way and that way, inflated, deflated, slightly inflated. Wore soft sweat pants with no seams and chaps. Put wallet in glove box. Mick-O-Pegs aren't worth 50 cents, jokes on me.
By the time I was half way, all I wanted to do is get home, Didn't want to stop anywhere because all I could think about was the pain I was in and how soon I wanted to get off of this abatross of an overly complicated piece of anal german engineering.
Today I am going to ride my little Sissy Suzuki Burgman 650 with an Air Hawk seat pad and a homemade back rest while I think about trading this behemouth for a late 90's Goldwing or maybe just a new Burgman.
Oh yah, I've figured it out. It looks like a broad shouldered good looking big tittied German woman with no ass.
