I'm new to this site and new to the experience of riding a K 12 LT.
I am the proud owner of a few BMW bikes, and recently purchased a LT to add to the stable.
Perhaps some of my questions are located in the FAQ's department, however I figured I'd go ahead and ask you folks what some of your experience(s) have been.
Recently my wife and I took the LT on it's maiden shake down cruz from San Diego CA. through Arizona to the Grand Canyon and back again. A great trip we even caught Tina Turner in concert in Glendale AZ. but that's another story!
Back to the bike, I noticed the display completely faded after a stop in sunny Blythe CA. temps were about 100 degrees F. The read out came back given time, I am just curious if any one has experienced a similar problem.
Secondarily, the OEM seat is literally a pain in the ass, what are some recommendations for aftermarket seats, I have a Sargent on my K12RS and have many happy hours with no Monkey Butt symptoms.
I welcome your responses in advance.
