Not really true. The new HD Ultra has a much better frame design and actually handles very well. It still needs a real engine though. The Wing already handles well. I have lots of miles on LTs and Wings. The LT does have a tad more clearance, but really doesn't handle any better - the high CG hurts it a little.fpmlt said:I've had both, and feel that the LT is a bike for being ridden - hard. It takes a little more concentration at low speed. If you just want to cruise around, Harley and Goldwing both fit the bill. If you want to "ride", the LT takes it hands down. Just really depends on what you want to do.
The only thing the LT is susceptible to is chronic inattention from the pilot.COMike said:OK, so I keep reading about how heavy the LT is and the issue of dropping. There are lots of heavy bikes out there. So why is the LT more susceptable to dropping than the Goldwing since they are about the same weight?

Oh, and don't just use one foot on the ground when you stop....planting two feet keeps the bike centered under you and both legs help provide balance!
Does anyone make knobbies for the LT?
