Really? Seriously? Let's see. I'm going on a four hundred mile trip and it would be better to have a 750cc motorcycle than a GoldWing or LT with "training wheels"? Uh, duh, NO! No on so many levels including comfort, weather protection, sound system (iPod), well, every reason why you bought an LT in the first place.BsquareWI said:
You ain't no wussy boy???? Hmmmm, just the fact Ron. BTW, since we are both (you more so than I) inventors, I always thought that some MP3 device that plugged into the AUX and perhaps had its own amplifier, etc with varying sounds:RonKMiller said:I think that's pretty darned clever, and I could think of more than a few times when I've been fully loaded with Momma, the poodle and a near 250 lb. trailer when those bad boys would come in REAL handy. And I ain't no wussy boy.
All you would need to complete the scenario is the sound of a turbine engine spooling down - blazing over the speakers - as you come to a stop.
Hey Channing,cfell said:Steve, was that my "cake"? haha.. thanks!
Sorry if I seemed to "smart off".. I was just thinking BMW could lower the seat level for some folks. At 6' 2" I stand flat-footed over the LT, yet it would be great to have an adequate seat... I know, quit whinin'...
The idea of the "wheels" seems a good one for folks who need the extra reach.. When I think of situations where you still might "high center" or get off kilter coming in and out of driveways and such, it just makes me pucker all the more.
I saw a program on TV a while back where a guy who had been paralysed in a road accident from the waist down had wheels similar to those shown. As he pulled away and got up to 10 mph the wheels would lift off the ground. As he slowed down they would deploy again to hold the bike up.
I'm with you man! That "contraption" is ridiculous-looking and pricey, to say the least. But, you'll learn (like I did) that there's a lot of thin-skinned folk that hover in this neck of cyberspace. And they're usually better typists than riders! Besides...since when aren't you allowed to have an opinion?BsquareWI said:Geez folks take it easy. Sorry for the (apparently poor) attempt at a joke. It was just a way of pointing out there are a little pricey. And funny looking. Definitely funny looking.
