Hi guys. I might be coming back
After a stint of 1 1/2 years riding around on the ruthless K1200S and on the super relaxed (but super buzzyyy) R1200CLC I sold both. Ah but the story gets a little complicated.
About a month or so ago I picked up a machine that I think it has a wonderfull drivetrain, lots of power, fun to ride in the twisties, confortable for me and SO (at least that is what she is saying), a 2003 "fully loaded" ABS Model ST1300. I tell you guys its a very nice bike. 10K miles
The heat, oh the heat. The heat that comes up from the that engine on the sides, under seat, tank, and frame, you can cook a steak on the frame of that bike after 10 minute ride.... I don't think I can live with it. I have installed the Honda Wind Deflectors, wrapped the pipes, nothing nothing is helping.
So wondering from dealership to dealership this weekend I come to my local BMW shop and they have a just traded in 2006 with 6900 miles and ALL the farkles man:
-BMW intercomm (although I forgot to ask if he had the headsets).
GPS Navigator III
BMW Handlebar mounted CB. Which I might take it out and sell it, don't have much use for it.
Passenger arm rests (SO liked it).
So now I itching, I itching to get back into an LT man. I used to have an 02, so there are some nice changes on the 06. The center stand, the steering rake up front. And what hope is a better rear drive bearing.
We will see what happens. I will keep everyone posted. It will be hard to shed the $$$ for the LT over the ST but the payoff might be worth it......
