Re: Tie down placement
I (luckily) knew in advance the proper tie down method for the LT. When I had a catastrophic tire failure (no crash - just rear tire unrepairable) in the middle of the Nevada desert, a tow truck was my only option.
The "professional" dispatched to assist had absolutely NO IDEA how to properly secure an LT (he said he'd done many Harleys...
). He was going to use pillion grab handles, and handlebars as tie down points!
Luckily, I'd seen the information shared on this site (this was years ago too), and was able to show him how to secure my bike.
And my wife always laughs at me for reading all I can! She even made fun of me for taking my GTL apart right when I got it to learn my way around it... Women!
