I've owned and enjoyed the LT for 5 years now but have decided to sell her in favour of a 2008 RT. Did some great long distance touring and really never had a major mechanical problem, hope the RT performs as well. The main reason for the change was the massive weight of the LT, I've shed almost 200 lbs. by switching. I've found incredible resources and good people here to help me with maintenance, hope I have the same experience with the RT group.
See you in CCR, Duluth.

Congrats on the new purchase. Been considering the same move for exactly the same reasons.

I made the change in 2010. Loved the LT but now like the RT better. The LT was just too heavy. I figure I lost over two hundred pounds, and about seven horsepower. What I enjoy most about the RT is that it does everything, handles well and isn't hard to handle in parking lots and slow traffic. It's also comfortable for long rides. Wife doesn't find it quite as comfortable as the LT but perhaps a Russel seat will solve that problem.
