Talking NEW 09 LT Is Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

Well as I had posted last week my ole 02 was totaled out in the collision, no real surprise based on the amount of damage it sustained. By the way, I have to take my hat off to Progressive Insurance. I had a check in hand four days following the accident. They paid to replace all my riding gear, including my helmet. All the extras I had on the LT were paid. That included the new Ohlins I had put on my LT in Feb/2011.
I was able to find the 09 right hear in this forum located outside Lafayette, Indiana (Thanks to Mike B.) and will be shipping to its new home on the west coast tomorrow.
It should be here the middle of next week, can't wait.

I was torn between going after a 1600 or keeping with the LT line for another couple of years. I decided to stick with the LT line, and figure in a couple of years the market will be flooded with new used 1600's. So if I am still want one at that time then I will get one, I am sure all the bugs will be worked out of them my then. Anyhow here I sit rehabbing waiting for my 2009 K1200LT to arrive....
Life is good!!!

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

Did the insurance company allow you to buy the wrecked LT back? The pictures make it look like there might be a few usable parts on it, may an Ebay fest in the future?

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

Won't make the CCR this year, but thanks for the offer. But you guys have a safe trip out there. Not sure how long it will be before I will be riding, have an MRI scheduled for the end of the month.
I didn't want the LT for parting out it made me sick enough just looking at it... There really wasn't many parts left, the rear wheel got knocked off center about 1/2 to 3/4 of inch. The only green that was usable was the front fender.

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

I agree with Bill. There is hardly anything more difficult to look at than a totaled LT. The worst one was the one that got caught up in the tornado earlier this year.

Glad to hear you are getting another LT. At least you know what the potential issues are. Might be kind of finding new ones on the GTL though.

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

Thank you all for all of your kind words and thoughts, and Lurch102 thank you for the offer of riding it west for me. Kra961 I plan on doing some of the same mods you did on your LT. The first thing I am doing is calling my dealer and buying the extended warranty, while the LT is still under the manufacturer warranty. And then itís on to getting the accessories ordered and installed.

Congrats on the 09 LT!!!
First really cheap mod is to tether the mirrors, then it's downhill from there and you will find yourself tearing down the bike to run wires, etc...!
Sorry you can't make CCR... Many wishes of fast and complete recovery!

LOL I think with this bike the Extended warranty is an absolute must given the cost of some of the components yikes. I have one more piece to buy which is the Wilber Front Shock installed the rear (what a difference) and I'm done I think or until some other shiny bit catches the eye.

If you have any questions drop a line glad to help out.

Bill, I have an 09 LT. I am pretty sure that the tethers are on the mirrors from the factory. I know mine were. Heal quickly and enjoy your new ride.

Very good point, I will check. Thanks for the heads up on that one. I do plan on enjoying the 09 LT, maybe I will heal up faster with it sitting in my garage.....

To be truthful I bought that front fender to replace my original one that cracked also. I did this about a year ago. Bought it on line I didn't pay what BMW wanted, but it was still expensive.

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

My 09 had factory teathers on the mirrors, so far they haven't been needed but it doen't take much to dislodge the mirrors as my wife has bumped them and almost broke one away . Enjoy the ride!!! You will heal faster when you see that bike sitting in your garage. Take care. Ron

I'm attempting a repair on the one I have. In the meantime, looking for a fender off an 1100RT which I believe will bolt up, hopefully be less expensive, and give me a different look as that fender comes down lower almost covering the calipers. good luck with your recovery and your new ride!

My '09 has been flawless.
The only problem I can't figger out is why it keeps needing the rear tire replaced???

Bill, if you don't mind sharing the info, what outfit did you contract to ship the LT and were they reasonably priced?

You bet, I used www.funtransport.com

Uploaded with ImageShack.us
To tell you the truth I really didn't shop around if I had I might of been able to find one cheaper. What I did I asked the service manager at the Indianapolis dealership who he would recommend. I figured he's either shipped m/c's or knew customers who have, so I relied on his recommendations only. He suggested Funtransport and said that the company been around for a long time, and said they specialize in motorcycles. Everyone he knew used them was very happy with the company. So I decided they will move my LT.

As far as the cost, it was 775.00 but that only allowed for 9000.00 worth of insurance, so I increased the value to 17K$ and the total bill came to 831.00. Could I have gotten it cheaper probably, but at least I felt very good about funtransport without ever doing business with them before. So that was priceless in my book....

Tell you what, you want to talk about stress, spending 16K on a motorcycle sight unseen and then having to figure out whom and how youíre going to ship that m/c 2100 miles, it was daunting to say the least.

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

I am glad to hear you are healing and have a "new" 2009 being delivered. As others have stated, the mirrors are already tethered. With a little adjustments on the mounting studs, they will not be easily bumped off. Also the stock seat sucks on long rides. Rides under 2 hours and you should be okay, Over that and its find your flavor of seat. So have fun with the new toy and adding all the farkles.

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

Thursday is the BIG day, my 09 LT will be delivered in the morning.

Next stop, DMV to get all the paperwork done. Then the fun will begin doing all the mods......

Just a thought, but since you bought the bike from a private party you should be able to get your transactions handled at your local AAA office.
The waiting room is much more comfortable... if you have to wait at all...!
When I registered my 3 LTs (99 bought in UT, 03 bought in PA, and 05 bought in FL) the gal at AAA checked the VIN and engine number (be sure to know where they are so you can point them out). Same with my cars that came from MA and FL... Gotta love the AAA

Plan on going up to small DMV Office up in the foothills, they share the office space with the CHP, so that will be right up my alley. As far as the VIN inspection goes had a buddy of mine inspect/sign off on it... Still have some fringe benefits even after retirement ...

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

I would think that your "new" 09 has to be one of the last new ones.
Then again, I could be wrong.....

Re: LOOK WHAT SHOWED UP TODAY!!!!!

It came a day early but I am not complaining. Condition is just how it was said to be scratchless and in perfect condition. It's just has a thick layer of dirt, dust and hand prints all over the bike. I will spend some time in the next few days detailing it out and making this LT shine...

Very nice to see another LT in the garage...

Re: NEW 09 LT Being Shipped To Me Tomorrow

To answer your question, the LT was used with 7000 miles, and had been meticulously taken care of.
