This past week I bought a new to me 900LT.It is an 07 with less than 2k miles.I've put about 500 miles on it so far and really enjoy it.I wasn't able to test drive so my first ride was after I bought it.It rides really smooth but is not as powerful as I expected.The 500 that this 900 replaces accelerated almost as well as the 900 solo but 2up the 900 is better.Now the fun in figuring out what to buy first.I would like pipes but may get passenger boards.Rubber sticks real well to chrome pipes don't it?

nice bike. I upgraded from the en500 to the 900lt also. My bike is the same color. I believed it would had been a close race between the 500 and the 900. I'm more into comfort than speed and I am very happy with the 900lt.

I think you are going to really like the 900. It is strange how it seems to ride better 2 up. Congratulations on your new ride.

Really nice looking bike you have there. Your going to love that 900. I don't really have anything to compair my 900 to since it's the first bike I've had in 27 years. The power on it is very smooth on acceleration. It will go as fast as I want it to, as quickly as I want to get there.
Ya done good!!

:D

Hope you like it as much as I like mine also Mike B wish I was in LA I see it will be up to 73 Thursday we are working in Springfield MO could not get in truck when I got up as it 15 & sheet of iced up yesterday. I got my 06 900LT this summer I looked for almost a year when I saw my bike I knew that is my bike. Aif it had been a little over 27 years for me not sure how long but liking it when the weather will let me rid. I left bike & trailer as I knew it would be to cold to ride much. I will be off the road Jan & Feb hope we have a few nice days.

I upgraded from the Suzuki Intruder 800 to my 900LT and LOVE IT!!!!
I admit, my 800 was MUCH FASTER, but it didn't offer the same comfort. I feel like I have gone from a Volkswagen to a Cadillac!!! :biggrin:

The 900lt is a great bike. You will enjoy it. As for what to buy first I would get the passenger boards. If you are trying to get the better half more comfortable that should be the number one goal. A happier half makes the whole ride so much better. lol

Now that you mention it, when I was riding pillion on the 900LT with hubby, I wanted those first. They made a HUGE difference in comfort!!!!! :p

dmdbit, spray a little brakleen on a soft cloth and wipe that rubber right off that pipe. It won't scratch or dull the chrome. My significant other sticks her little feets on the pipes all the time. (lol) Good luck and safe ridin'

The only thing better than floorboards for the Mrs. is her own LT.
