Smile Euro rider1

Hi All! Just purchased a 2010 K1200LT with 9000 miles on the ticker. Been riding Honda Goldwing for the past 4 years and really wasnt my bag. I like to knee drag and drive sporty. And being 6"5 the Goldwing got real uncomfortable during trips and generally no fun on the mountain roads. I was always scared of hitting bottom. Owned a GS and Honda varadero 1000 .in germany. Test drove LT and really felt at home again. So i traded. Let the fun begin.

Eurorider1 (is that your real name?)

Well done on picking an LT. Not sure if "knee dragging" would be a reason to buy one, but it's no slouch through the corners!

Re: Euro rider1

Wooohw eurorider1 with an LT you picked the right Truk for knee dragging .
But anyhow always a good and safe ride.
Dont overforce it on the beginning. I think it will take a few miles.
