A Day of Mixed Emotions

Well I have been on the board for 13 years, it has been a great place for building relationships, becoming educated, a GREAT resource.Well today I sold the LT and most all my spares, they are on their way to a new home in Wisconsin.

I hope that all you LT guys will not shun me as I move down 220# to a R1150RT.

Pray for my Wife..

Good luck, Bill. Lighter ride, hope your wife is comfy. Got friends on RTs, so no shunning here. Bring it to an RTE sometime so we can Ooo & Ahh.

Enjoyed meeting you Bill. I got the bearing in and final drive and it works like a champ. Also, I love the new EBC rotor and pads.

Thanks.

I too, moved off of the LT to an RT and have not regretted it. You even helped me get my trailer hitch wired on my new RT.

Enjoy the new bike and make sure you still hang out on the forum...the RT section is pretty active also .

Prayers for the wife!

A lot of use moved away from the LT for a smaller / Lighter bike. No one laughs at us any more then normal.

Thanks for your prays, She is great (for her age) the prays are for her comfort on the RT, she was crying harder than I as the LT left our drive way.
