Tips and Tricks for the LT Video Released!

In this video I demonstrate how to pick up a K1200LT by yourself, place it on the center stand. I also show the proper hold down points for trailering and when to change out your HID headlight bulb! Kirk

Kirk,

As a newby to the LT (less than a year) and a willing gear head, your videos have been extremely helpful to me. Thanks much.
