This kind of thing really pisses me off . . .
One of the things that really irks me is all the attention my BMW K1200LT gets from the lesser, more commonplace marques.
For example, this afternoon my wife and I were tooling around Larkspur, Colorado on our roundabout return from the CCR event in Utah. We found a nice little out of the way spot and decided to stop and have a milkshake. A great little place.
Well, wouldn't you know it? Just twenty minutes later we leave to saddle up for another leg of the trip and we discover our LT has been surrounded by some of those pauper vehicles I mentioned . . . in this case, a few Ferraris and Lamborghinis. They were all fighting to get to the front so they could ogle the LT better. Ferchristsakes, I've never seen such ill-mannered machinery!
Well, they just sat there, staring at the LT, drooling coolant and God-knows-what-else all over the pavement. Sally and I hate this -- it happens all the time -- so we hurried to get in our gear and got the hell out of there before the Italian road trash started fighting amongst themselves. I snapped a quick pic just to document the bad behavior.
Motor Vehicle Envy: One more reason no one should buy an LT.
