What do you fellows think of this?

Not sure of the paint scheme, but wished it was closer to NH.                  Steve

I am no expert on LTs but it looks to be in great shape to me.  The mileage is low without being non existent, these bikes like to be ridden. Second owner from new and always BMW maintained has to be good.  The only thing I wold say is that although the LTs were the most expensive model when new they are normally the least desirable used so the price might be a little high.

Paint job is okay.  Price looks pretty reasonable to me.  It's a shame what these great machines are going for.

What do you fellows think of this?
Does it start? Does it idle? Does it run? Does it run then idle? Does it stop and yet idle? Can the brakes stop forward motion or is stopping dependent upon gravity or obstacles? Do the brakes pulsate when it stops? What's that noise right there just behind the transmission or maybe in front of it? Does the horn honk when an indicator flashes? Do the indicators honk and the high beam blink alternately? Can it be ridden with one hand? Can it be ridden with no hands? Can it be ridden with no feet?

To paraphrase the words of Dicken's Ralph Nickleby, Beneath every pretty face, there's a grinning skull.

Go for it. :2thumbup:
