New Guy on the block

Hi folks:
First time here, and a new owner of a k1200. Been reading through the post and found a lot of info. I hoped that I would be able to find a site like this {cause I got a lot of questions}.

Welcome! This is a great community with loads of collective experience. Check out the FAQ and the Hall of Wisdom under the "Technical" menu. You can often find lots of prior posts using the Search feature.

Keep an eye open for local tech sessions or other informal gatherings. That's a great way to meet other LT owners.

Bought used K1200LT number 3. This one is green/teal with 31,369(now 7/29/2018 54,143) miles and is an '02. The first 2 bikes made it to near 150,000 miles.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.
