LT on the Dragon...no ABS..LT or other bike
I know that my ABS system has been on the blink the last few days, but I had to go. It's had a problem going on and off, with the front brake not being affected, so I hit the road with my SO and 2 older brothers and friends. We stayed at the Fontana Resort, ( during Hellbender rally ) rode all the roads, ( with ABS on and off ) pucker effect until I properly managed to use the engine torque and gears.
I know that I've had a beef about the HIGH cost of these beasts maintenance wise, ( I do as much as I can ) and talked to alot of riders about different brands and cost and I'm almost ready to to make the change. I know what I want in a bike and about how much I can afford so here goes...I am considering a H-D Ultra Classic or a newer Goldwing. My wife and I travel more and I want something that can be serviced in almost any city, ( not just a few and far between ) all hard bagged with lots of power, lower seat, not so top heavy. I do love the LT, but DAMN it's expensive to maintain, even if you live near a dealership and I think I've just gotten over the BMW burn a hole in your pocket blues.
