Talking Thank you!

I just wanted to thank all of the members and posters here for the information that made it possible fo me to make an educated purchase of my new (to me) 2001 K1200LT!

I am sure tons of people lurk here without posting, but now that I am in the club so to speak I will look forward to participating and sharing the joy and inevitable frustrations of owning one of these terrific motorcycles.

I was within a whisker of buying a GW1500. On a lark, I decided to see what else I might be passing up. I did some research and a ton of reading and was surprised to find that a nice 1200LT was right in my strike zone

I found one locally a couple of weeks ago and have enjoyed the ride ever since. To all of you who have left some real nuggets of wisdom on this board, thank you.

You are certainly welcome and drop by anytime to get useless bits of information from a whole pack of know-it-alls, yours truly included.
Give your LT a regular Italian tune-up and ride it like ya stole it!!!

Thumbs up

I agree with Brian. I'm really glad all of you riders with tons of wisdom are on here helping those of us who are new to the LT. I've learned more on here than I ever could've known by memorizing the owners manual. thank you!

I've had my LT for ~5 months and am loving every minute. I considered a 'Wing as well, but don't regret it for a second. I've received so many compliments I can't even count anymore.

Remember, we were all new once. My enjoyment of the LT has been enhanced significantly by the great group of folks here.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Brian and Ryan, we were all new and can learn a lot. Find a tech session in your area and go watch the masters do what they love to do. It's inspiring and the knowledge gained will almost haunt you.
Good luck.
P.S. This board also made up my mind to buy a LT.
