Re: K1200LT advice
Not ridden in Ireland yet, but my legs are shortish.
Touching the floor on a K12 is more about balance than flat footed strength. Once it is past a certain point, you cant stop it, so keeping it balanced with toes is the aim.
Once it is over 5mph - the weight becomes your best friend, it is so stable and is a breeze in corners.
I commuted on the K12 for years before working from home. It does motorways of course, but you would be surprised at how nippy it is when you get the revs up. The forst time I saw a K1200lt was when I was commuting into london on my other bike (ST1100) and these 2 guys slipped past and through real conjested traffic - they looked so cool
If you look at the vids in my signiture you will see that hairpins and alpine mountains are all possible as well!
