Re: Anyone In New Jersey/Philly Area For This?
Well to make a short story long, when my wife and I were down at "Tail of the Dragon" in 2010 I had the LT loaded down, created a higher center of gravity and probably maxed out in weight, it was all I could to maneuver it around in the hilly areas at slower speeds. At one point I let my guard down and put my left foot down on the low side of a hill. Well over we went, it threw Deb into a mud puddle and me, well I just felt like an ass. It took 3 of us to right the beast and it was then I decided to do something about it if I were to keep it. Didn't really want to get rid of it for the long distance traveling comfort. Plus this will give my spouse an opportunity to pilot it herself as she is of short stature, (munchkin). I'll probably get rid of my other 2 bikes and buy a used R1200RT for traveling on 2 wheels but keep it somewhat localized, maybe no more than 5 or 6 hours away. I'm going to be out and about today but will pm my cell number soon......see you soon, Rob
