Joining the club

I picked up my 2016 LT a couple of weeks ago and am liking it so far. I have been away from riding for 20+ years and it is amazing how much better this bike is compared to what I rode before (my last one was an '81 KZ 750, which I found perfectly fine). I am re-acquainting myself with riding this fall before getting back to some touring next year.

Thanks for the welcome. I got a centerstand and DC power on the way. I can see that a seat mod might be in order - seems fine with the riding pants, but not so nice in jeans. Only complaint so far is the pain of cracking my shin on the butt end of the grab bar when mounting (very painful) - a short-leg problem I guess.

Welcome............I just purchased a 2015 LT and I think the seat needs a mod and the bars need some risers. Otherwise a very nice bike.
