Newb looking for K1200LT owner in western MA
I've got the urge to try a touring bike for a while, and it seems there are a few reasonably priced 1999-2002 K1200LTs around the country. I've never bought a bike with out seeing it before, but the idea of a fly and ride sure is interesting. I've never been up close to a K1200LT (that I know of, certainly not since I've been interested), and I'd need to sit on one to feel out the ergos before I could even think about doing that though. Does anyone know of a used one at a local dealer? I checked AJ's site, nothing there. Or does anyone nearby have one they wouldn't mind me having a look at and possibly sitting on? I've seen a couple on Craigslist, but I don't want to bother someone if I'm not intending to buy their bike.
Also, not being that familiar with BMWs, is there any service that must be done by dealer in the '99-02 years? (that requires computer/software/electronic tools, etc to reset anything?). I tend to like to work on my own bikes for the most part. I'm hesitant to get into a bike that will require me to spend a lot on labor; that's where I'm used to saving money.
