Rode 2012 K1600GTL

Last thanksgiving my brother rode my 09 LT. He picked up his 2012 K1600GTL Saturday. It was a Demo for Livermore BMW has 2300 miles on it and we rode through Lake Berryessa to the Silverado trail this afternoon. He bought it for 24K.

I rode it for part of the ride. While it is much faster and was very nice I didn't think that the windshield created a bubble like the LT. Though it was set on normal it was not as comfortable as the LT. Very nice though, I am glad that I have my LT.

Re: Rode 2012 K1600GTL

For me...how about a new LT with the 1600 motor in it. I'm 6'4" 245lbs with a 36" inseam. The GTL is too small for me.
I am in search though for a new seat. Haven't been able to decide. Don't want to make the dreaded 500plus dollar mistake. Have an airhawk right now and it is ok. Need a larger seat to really do the trick I think. Kon Tour Maxim or Bill Mayer. Any input would be REALLY appreciated.
LOVE MY LT. IT'S GOING TO BE MY ANTIQUE BMW!
