Re: September Issue Motorcycle Consumer News
Well, good for mcn. I personally like the gtl better than the honda or the lt.
It certainally is in a class by itself.
I would never take the bags off to go into a motel. I have soft liners, they work fine.
with a steady hand and a quick learning curve i can do the 30 to 45 in traffic all day long. I ride in dynamic always. You will all pick it up.
All of the doubters, dont buy it. you can find a problem with anything. to me it is the perfect balance of a 1200s and an rt.
I would suggest anyone who doesnt want the excelence of the gtl to please buy a used lt, or an rt, or even a honda or connie. like i said above, they are all in a different class.
as metioned by another member, they didnt call it a k1600lt for a reason, its not heavy, it handles like you wouldnt believe, smooth and quick as all get out when you want it. the most enjoyment is trying to ride it and slowly accelerate. I truly doubt you will find these bikes 8 years old with 6k miles on them like alot of lt's.
I owned a 99 ltc, and a 2002 ltc. I am glad i no longer have to ride one and I get to ride on the best tourbike ever built/designed. I dont know what everyone else is looking for, but I ride the whole rear tire, and I dont get flat spots like most lt's and hondas i see. but then again i do go over 20 degrees lean angle.
Perhaps most of the doubters dont like riding with a smile on thier face, thier loss.
Have a nice ride, ride what you want, If you dont want a gtl, dont buy it, dont dis it either, and good luck keeping up to me in the twisties, rofl
