Hello and Thanks!
My name is Nick and I just wanted to introduce myself. This is my first post, though I must confess Iíve been lurking around the site for about a year. I fell in love with the K1200LT the first time I saw one and quickly set my sights on owning one. Last September, after about a four year hiatus from riding, my wife and I found a 2002 K1200LT for sale in Dallas. It turned out that the original owner lived here in Amarillo, so I was able to contact him and learn a little about the bikeís history.
I thought I was a pretty experienced rider, but I found thereís a bit of a learning curve to an 850 pound top-heavy motorcycle. It requires extra attention at slow speeds, but on twisty roads it can read my mind. I like to do my own maintenance, and without the help of this website, I wouldnít have the courage. So, THANK YOU ALL for the knowledge and experience you have shared on these pages. I always try searching before I ask questions, and so far every question Iíve had about the bike has been asked and answered at least once. I really canít say enough about how helpful this place is. I only hope that one day I can return the favor.
See you down the road,
