messenger13's last long LT ride?
Last Friday (6/9/06), I pulled outta Cleveland on my LT for what just might be the last long ride I take on a K1200LT. A few hours south of my home, I sealed the deal on my new '06 BMW K1200GT. (more on that later)
I rode through some backroads of Ohio that I've never ridden, as well as some riding through the mountains of West Virginia. Finally ended up at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge in Stecoah, North Carolina. I rode the Cherohala Skyway one last time with the LT, then headed back home.
A VERY eventful trip to say the least. (Some threads to follow.) But the LT turned 43K and once again, returned home without a single issue. Just miles of smiles, through sunshine and rain.
A part of me is going to miss the LT with it's gone . . . I'm sure of it. The BMW K1200LT has opened my eyes to LD Touring, and I like it! It has also introduced me to many friends, both online and in person. And for that, I'm grateful.
