redryder Posted February 26, 2007 Share Posted February 26, 2007 Hello all, I am a regular on the forum, but hang out on the oilhead side of the fence, having an RT. But recently, my wife told me while we were at the dealer "if you had one of these LTs, I "MIGHT" ride with you more. So, not being a direct decendant of J.P. Morgan, I can't afford a new LT just to see "if" she'll ride. So, I went in search of a good used LT, and think I've found one that will suit my needs. Keep in mind, that I wouldn't trade my RT for 5 LTs, so I'm keeping the oilhead in the stable. I've become fond of a 2000 LT, one owner, 48K with a few extra farkles. Talked to the man today and he says all scheduled maintenance has been performed at the BMW dealer. He has two other bikes, GSs both, and prefers to ride them over the LT since his wife "doesn't ride" anymore. My question for your K-bike brains is: What are the weaknesses of the Ks, and specifically LTs? What should I look for when kicking the tires and test driving it? Issues such as spline lube as on the oilheads? Thanks in advance for your input and advice. I'm looking forward to spending lots of miles on the RT for one up and LT for two up riding, should the wife decide she'll go with me. BTW, she has ridden the RT with me, but as either one of us is as skinny as we were when married 26 years ago, there's not much room for her on the pillion on the RT. Hopefully, there's an couple of inches more on the LT. Link to comment
