I went out and bought a 00 LT with 15000 miles on her in December. I test rode her for about an hour and loved it. It wa 25 degrees out and I had to turn the grip heaters down my hands were so hot!! Now she sits in my garage next to my HD 03 Low Rider waiting for spring to come. The worst thing that has happened to me so far is me finding this web site. Between hearing about the rear drive problems, slave units that have to be replaced or face major clutch damage, and shifter linkage that just falls off, Im beginning to question BMWs reputation for quality. I think come spring Ill just ride her and hope for the best unless someone convinces me to do otherwise. It is a beautiful bike. Good to meet you all!!
