New (to me) LT in CT

Hello all,

Picked up my silver 03 LTC and only put about 500(smile)miles on her(way to much snow bring on global warming). I was getting off I91 in New Haven when when I look to my right there is a champaign LT pulling up next to me. Light Turned green didnt get a name so if you happen to read this please shout out.


John


PS.. so glad i found this site very helpful in my purchase.

Re: New (to me) LT in CT

Welcome to the board fellow CT. I am new here also. My LT was a first having so many Ultra's. The graduation has been a real thrill. The comfort being by far the most important.

I am taking a brief FL break from riding in between the snow storms but on my return I hope to start really putting on the miles.

Look for a Blue LT with CT License KB1 WR. Yes a ham radio operator.

Re: New (to me) LT in CT

Congrats on the purchase!

Keep an eye on the forum - there may be an announcement of a "Tech Session" here in Oxford. Very intense - "Checking Tire Pressures" followed by "Sitting in a float in the pool".
Coronas at the poolside Tiki Bar will be optional.

Don't mind the heavily tattooed freak that will be there - he's your host!

Re: New (to me) LT in CT

The MM1000 sounded great to me until noticed the date.

I will be on a Red Sox weekend in Mass with SO and knee highs.

Wow a Sox fan from West HAven? I thought part of living in West Haven's rule were you had to be a Yankee Fan.

I am a huge Sox fan and am very jealous that you will be enjoying a weekend of baseball.

Re: New (to me) LT in CT

That is very cool. My wife painted one of the walls in my office like the green monster. She also put an entire collection of Red Sox baseball cards around the room like a border. Of course all the other rooms are painted using the official colors of the Sox.
