Re: Please post some Positive Things too...
This will be my third year of LT ownership (2002), pulled him out of the garage a month or so ago, unplugged the float charger, tapped the start button, and he lit up instantly. like he's been waiting all winter for me to push that button.
However, the ABS warning issue I saw at the end of last season a couple times was still there. Took him into the dealership for an oil change and a diagnostic on the ABS light, quite concerned that I was going to get the "Your ABS system is shot, that will be $2000 to fix" message. Nope... before he even looked at it, the tech assured me it was probably just low fluid in the rear brake circuit (oh, that's embarassing to have failed to check!), and sure enough, a brake system flush and fill fixed it right up, ABS is perfect again.
I'm not racking up the miles many people do on it, but at this point, I really could not be happier with my investment. The bike is great, my dealer takes good care of me, my local BMW motorcycle gang...er...club is a bunch of great people, support on this list is great... win all around.
ok, I realize this is shallow in the way I hate, but I'll admit parking the thing and having people I've never met walk up to me and say, "That's the coolest looking bike I've seen in a long time" is a blast, too.
