Was thinking of selling...
For awhile, I've thought of selling my 2000 lt. My wife's health isn't good and she seldom rides and if she does no more than an hour or so, so I felt I didn't need such a heavy tourer. I even listed it on craigs list and here a coupla' times. Set it out by my barbers for a few days. I thought I'd like a Suzuki weestrom for versatility, ease of transport. Then...I'd take a little ride. I have had a lot of bikes, but never one as comfortable as this old LT. And, the old thing really moves. If you run into fresh gravel, it's not much fun at all...can't comfortably leave the paved roads...but, on the pavement it's a pretty wonderful ride. The other thing is the market is awful on LT's. I've put a lot of time and money into this bike and have a lot of spare parts and special tools. I know what I've got...a dependable, comfortable long-term bike. It's worth a lot more than I can get for it and it's paid for. I guess I'll just have to start saving my pennies and get a weestrom "on the side" and give up on my misguided attempts to off load a perfectly great bike. I know this seems kinda' strange, but, I just had to unload.
