2006, 137,000 KM
Well I joined up and was going to ask about buying this 2006 LT with 137,000 KM on it but have since spent some time in here reading the posts. What a great site! I currently bought a 2014 Concours 14 last year (new off the showroom floor) and was a big mistake. Very uncomfortable. Only put 4500KM on it last season. Over the winter months, I've been obsessing over what to do and with riding season here in Canada coming up, my obsession has grown to DAILY research.
In the past few weeks, I have gone from "customize the existing bike" to "buy a BMW or Gold Wing" about 5x now. Currently there is a 2006 K1200LT with 137,000KM on it available. I've been trying to decide if I should trade for it or not. Looks like brand new.
In my travels here, I've learned that asking the question would just result in the same answers from previous posts... check the service records, etc, etc. What I have not been able to discern is, what is the average life of this bike? Is it near EoL or half way? Again, depends on way to many variables to answer. There are no easy answers I guess.
At this point, I am second guessing everything one day and all in the next day. Wish I could just go riding. I'm gonna hangout here until I make a decision. If anyone has some advice, its greatly appreciated.
