So are you keeping the LT? what happened to the V STROM?
I couldn't wait for feedback to the above question which I posted last night, so I ordered one today. They have 2 models that fit the LT, the 8.5 liter and 11 liter models. This product, to me, seems like the perfect way to put electronics on a bike and easily take it with you to a hotel, another bike, etc. Only a couple of cables would have to be duplicated between 2 bikes. It also answers the question about which shelf or mount to put a GPS on, for example.
Pricey? Certainly, but when you consider half the cost is the bag itself, then add the cost of the Powerlet and Ram Mount pieces plus cables, it makes more sense. Many guys might not spend that much on a tank bag, but when they electrify it and add the cost of various mounts, etc., they are already there.
I'm happy to say we are keeping the LT. If a V-Strom or other lighter bike appears in my garage in the future it will be a second bike, not a replacement for the LT.
Soon to appear on the LT should be new shocks (wayyyyyy overdue) and a lift of some kind.
