I just got around to servicing the LT for another 3K miles.

While I had her up and apart I decided to replace another side stand.

While some of you are getting 10K on a set of tires, others of us only get 10K out of our side stands.

:histerica

New shocks = increased ride height = greater lean angle = 12k from your next side stand. ;)

Knowing where he rides and seeing pictures I can definitely see it happening. ;) On my second trip to Deal's Gap I seemed to hear quite a bit of scraping the left and even a bit on the right. :rolleyes: High revs, lower speeds and sharp turns can do that.
