Re: New K1200 LT Owner
Welcome to the LT community. I too just picked up an '09 LT a couple of weeks ago. I went a good ways equipping mine. I got the free comm system and with the $1,250 of free accessories, went for the CB radio and Nav system. At this point I'm loving the bike. It loves everything I throw at it. My most recent bike was a Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager (2009) and it's night and day different. However, the bike I had prior to that was an '04 Goldwing. The Goldwing is more appropriate to compare with the LT but I think the LT is a better bike. It's a little lighter, much more fun in the corners and gets way better mileage. The only thing the Goldwing can do better is on the power side of the equation. Acceleration is harder on the Goldwing but when you get into the power range on the LT, it's no slouch. Anyway, so far I'm loving my LT and can't wait to rack up the mile.
