After riding for less than 100 miles on my K1200LT my hips begin to hurt. I have lowered the pegs and I have a back rest. Any suggestions?

Also, has anyone ever pulled a trailer on their LT? If so can you direct me to where I can find information about trailers, hitches etc.

Re: Jacpls

A custom saddle usually helps address ergonomic problems. Lots of folks pull trailers, if you do a search on the site for trailers, cruise through the articles under the technical link at the top of the page, and check out our supporting vendors, you'll find a great deal of information.

They could. As could all the manufacturers, but that would put all of the custom seat builders out of business.

Re: Jacpls

I had the same troubles with my hips too. I lowered the pegs , added a back rest but no joy. A new seat fixed it.
As for a trailer YES I PULL A TRAILER !!! LOOK HERE for info on them.
I pull a BUSHTEC Turbo + II and love it.
