New K1200LTC Owner!
All I can say is holy S*$T, this bike is amazing! Just traded in my 2002 R1150GS, and a Honda ST1100, for a 2003 K1200LTC..straight across the board! This thing handles amazingly compared to the other two, and is more comfortable then either. I was a little hesitant at first after reading about low speed maneuvering..but this bike handles better, and feels lighter than the ST by a long-shot. I rode back with a friend on the back..cruising at 90mph down the freeway for 60 miles..never felt the extra weight, never would have done that fast on the ST (even he commented how nice it was passing cars instead of being passed), with the radio on, enjoying the feel of a truly remarkable bike! I'm still completely in awe of hoe light this bike feels when moving at high speed, and where the power band seems to kick in (seems like around 3800 rpm). The cruise is soooo much better than a throttle lock, and the extra comfort is amazing..only thing to get used to..well shifting at a higher rpm, and the brakes (they seem borderline insane) with a light touch if you're not careful, it'd be easy to lock them up!
I'm sure all of you have experienced this before..but dang if this isn't the most precise/comfortable/well equipped bike ever made..screw the goldwing guys!
