more info for the hunt for my LT
Thank you for the info I have gotten so far....
At the end of last season I tried several bikes. I really like the K1200 LT so that is what I am looking for. (what I tried... Yam RSV, Kaw Voyager, and Honda GW... still need to try BMW R1200 CL... like the unique look but don't like the rareness of it.) None of them felt like they fit me well till I sat on the LT.
My questions I have is which gen should I consider?? 1999-2004 or 2005 and up?? I cant really afford the K1600... could.. lol, for me to much money to spend. Anyway, one reason Id like to go newer is ... its newer, but also I like the added light, and figure hope more of the typical issues I hear about are resolved. I have seen the FD issues, but is there a year that its mostly been resolved by?? I also like the idea of the electric center stand, but have noticed it can have issue too.
So.... any input on things I should look for, pay attention to when riding..., mileage, wear... etc...?? It would be greatly considered and appreciated.
I'm upgrading because my wife likes to go riding with me and I enjoy having her go, also the kids are getting older so its soon to be getting easier to go for us to go on rides. My current ride is tight for two people but its doable, I currently have a 1997 Honda Magna, set up for a basic tour bike.
Well, in advance, thank you for the help!
