Traded the trusted LT for the GT

Well, I did it. I went to Max BMW in NH to look at smaller bikes and I traded my 2003 K1200LT for a 2009 K1300GT with 7800 miles on it.

Wow!! I should have done this sooner. I cannot believe the difference in sheer power. The comfort is obviously less then the LT. But, the handling and power more then make up for it. I can take the KGT all around town without any concern. The KLT was a handful.

It's to bad that the KGT 1300 has been discontinued. It really is an incredible ride.

The guys at Max BMW were great to deal with. My salesman was Frank and I would recommend him to anyone.

Re: Traded the trusted LT for the GT

Welcome to the "More Horse Power" Club. I just went from a 2000 LT with 70K on the clock to the new K1600GTL. Man what a difference it is.
