Talking New to me! Thanks Forum...

Just wanted to say "Thanks" to all of you who posted information on this site. I just picked up my "New to me" 2002 K1200LT from a forum member.

It has been very reassuring to read the honest input on here. It made the decision and process of procuring a used bike, much easier and more fun.

I rode the bike home from Ohio (approximately 2 hours) yesterday, and I know now this is the bike for me. What a dream on the highway. This bike just loves to cruise and the amenities are great.

I look forward to future posts on here.

Thanks again.

H. Keith Murray

Congratulations Keith! And another one drinks the purple kool-aid! Aint it great! How long did it take you to finally get that I can't believe I have an LT grin to disappear from your face? Expect to feel that way for a long long time!

I am not sure if it will ever go away. I am so impressed with this bike. I really thought the size would be an issue, based on all of the input on here. However, coming from a Road King, this thing feels very nimble. Like anything I guess it is all perspective.

Anyway, I am loving it!

Thanks for the note.

I was going to say that it probably will not go away...............I've been on my '03 for the last three years. Folks around town just figure I must be up to something naughty...........I always grin now..................

Congratulations on your new purchase Keith. I live in Cleveland and was out riding yesterday. It was truly a nice day.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobobomy!

Congratulations Keith. Wishing you lots of safe & fun miles on it. I'm guessing you have some Irish blood in you? (Doesn't everyone, but with a name like that maybe you have the full quota!).
