Re: Why was I worried?
Jeff - sorry the hear about the divorce, but glad you pulled the trigger on a K1200LT. I still have my VTX1800, which I also love the monster torque of, and I took it out last night to dinner with my wife. My VTX is quite modified, including new heated seats and grips etc (tried to make a BMW tourer out of her). So my wife asks me last night "which is the better bike". While I really love the VTX, if I was a one bike garage, I'd be sticking with the LT. Sadly in the near future my VTX will likely be put up for sale as my daughter will be needing a car soon, and I know I'm gonna miss her! But the LT is truly an amazing ride.
