Got my new 2009 LT last week. It was still crated when I went to see it. The day I rode it home the wind was very high. I had trouble controlling the bike. I had to take the back roads and at one time I had to pull over to rest because I had been fighting it so much. I was ready to take it back and demand my money. I called the dealer but they were already gone for the day. I never read where anyone complained about the problem so I started looking for information on the internet. The first post I read, a guy was talking about the same problem and he said he checked suspension adjustment under the seat and it was set very high. He cranked it all the down and it was like magic. The bike handled totally different. I made the same adjustment and got back on it and couldn't believe how much difference that made. Now I'm very happy with my new girl. I'm amazed at how nimble it is for such a large bike and how easy it is to handle. I was concerned about it being so top heavy but I'm yet to notice it when I stop. My wife picked up her 2010 F800ST the next day and she is very happy with it. I was riding a Honda VTX 1300 and she had a Kawasaki Vulcan 900 SE. After riding the LT, I may never even sit on another cruiser. We will spend the next few months getting used to the bikes then we are planning some distance trips in the spring, summer and fall next year. I can't wait to get out on the open road or the winding back country roads. i think we picked the right bikes.
