This is my first post on the LT forum.
I live in Tel Aviv, Israel.
30 yrs old, live with my girlfriend (+3 adorable dogs), a K1200LT(2000) and a K1200R(2006)
I used to own a 2007 R1200RT (sand beige) - but as soon as i (& more importantly, the S/O
) sat on the LT - we knew what had to be done.
I was an active member of the RT forum (same username)and found the members to be informative, friendly and inviting.
I understand that BM are releasing a new LT within a short period of time, so i opted to buy a used LT and wait. To be honest, i did not expect the bike to be THIS good - and now i even have my doubts about upgrading.
This is my first used bike, so needless to say i had to make a few changes sine i bought it; Ohlins suspension, new clutch, Cee baileys screen, LED illuminated side lights, HID lights and finally a navigaton/GPS system.
I spent weeks looking for a proper GPS setup (going through every thread on this site!) and finally decided that none of the "out-of-the-box" systems would work. I wanted a setup that would be waterproof, theftproof and easy to use. The whole system is operated by a tiny remote control and the infra-red eye was placed inside the light (located directly above the speedo). The screen is a cannibalised 4" toshiba LCD ,placed behind perspex and waterproof coating.
The plastic housing was built specifically for my height, so i can see all the buttons/lights on the dashboard when seated.
So, ladies and gentleman, i am proud to show-off the finished product:

May i also take this opportunity to wish all of you a Happy New Year.
