I purchased an LT for a cross country trip I was planning on taking and It's been hard to admit but that was a mistake. It is just too damn heavy for me to handle at low speed and in stop and go traffic.

Out on the highway and on 2 lane back roads it's great! But the in town handling has become a deal breaker for me. I gave it 10k miles for me to get used to it and it's just not the bike for me. Even being 6'0" and a 33 inch inseam wasn't enough I don't think. If I was 6'4" things might have been different.

When Spring rolls around its going up for sale I'm afraid. Probably look to trade on a first gen FZ1, at least that's what I'm thinking currently.

But to the fans of this bike, if it suits you, more power to ya!
