The LT is an old design with much higher service costs. My GT is far less.

My last BMW car had adaptive headlights and it was no big deal. Lots of this tech on bikes is pretty mainstream for cars.

I've noticed on Ducati and BMW the service costs have come down over the years. They've both made an effort to engineer the bikes with service in mind and use it as a selling point.

The LT is a bytch though. My buddy who has one just got totally hosed a few months ago.

A friend of mine has one as well, nice bike but nothing cheap about it. I'd be pretty happy with a GT, it and an RT were on the short list when I bought the FLHT.

This new one is typical of BMW, the answer to a question no one asked. Why do you need a motorcycle version of i-drive? The inline six is a winner though the Benelli and Honda six's were the bees knees in their day

I caught the Honda rerun of Twist the Throttle Monday night. Watching the new CBX's going off the line brought a tear to my eye.

Twist the Throttle is the coolest teevee show ever made. I've seen 5 or 6 of them now. They should make a DVD box set.

I am not a big fan of TtT. I find it pretty boring, and ignores most of the things I love about motorcycling. Racing, dirt bikes, and people.

LOL! I'd consider $800 to be a screwjob too.
