Thanks Robert , While I do enjoy riding it it is not what I really need. I should have applied more thought before buying it. I am now looking at a used LT.
How do you like the CLC?

Re: 1995 K75s

Nice K75... I'll bet that bike is infinitely flickable...

The LT will flick but she's still heavy....Great for two up.....

The CLC's are great....

Had an '03 LT before.The CLC rules.Many say it's underpowered.Well it's not an LT thats for sure,but other than that it offers everything the LT has + character/personality.Plan to keep it for a very looong time.Take one out for a test ride if you have the opportunity.

Take your time and test ride as many models as you can before you spend your dollars.

Best of luck,Robert.

Thanks John , I really no longer like to flick and ride in too much weather over the pass to enjoy this small bike. I also have to be honest it is really (IMHO) not a great handling bike. I really think I trusted my RT in a hard corner more than this one.
Anyway , generally , VERY gusty wind and rain are my enemies and my ride is mostly straight as an arrow.
This is the road down the pass toward my home.

If you want to borrow my 2003LT for a week, you're welcome to--you can really awe the folks at WSMR when you roll up to the gate with a two-star sticker.

Re: 1995 K75s

Well, in the first place, You'd be hard pressed to outride some who knows what he's doing on an RT.....Especially a newer R1100+ model.. They're very tight...

But a K75 is on my list of bikes to have......I'd like to turn one into an adventure type ride...
Knobbies and such...Get rid of the lower plastic and put on some engine guards.. Yum.....

What I really like about the CLC is...... It's has all the nice features of the LT Plus it's low center of gravity makes it a LOT easier to handle at low speeds...It's still heavy but way better...For me...It's fast enough to go anywhere.. It'll cruise all day at 80...

It's not the canyon carver that the LT is but it's probably 80% as capable in that department because of the different frame geometry and more forward foot position....But then the RT is the real canyon carver isn't it.....

Oh yeah it's comfortable with the right seat too.....

Good Day Sir!
You make the rounds eah?
Thank You so much for the offer and while it would be good for an un-deserved salute or two, I will once again have to decline ( you remember the "I hate to borrow bikes" speech)
I do really thank you for the offer. I have ridden one before but was wondering about what quirks they may have.
Thanks and good to hear from you sir.
