Re: New K1200LT Owner
Words of Wisdom! You brought up some valid points that are worth considering.
This bike is totally new to me; I've had it for 5 days now. I can't even believe I have a BMW parked in my garage, let alone a luxury touring bike. All my past bikes have been dedicated track bikes and dirt bikes. I am a sucker for vintage Japanese iron, but the BMW was too good an option to turn down. So, you could say I took the Pepsi Challenge and am happy with my decision.
About the GPS, I have not attached any GPS onto the bike, yet. I just have this "infrastructure" staring at me!! Being the new kid on the block, I did not have a clue what it was, hence my reason for posting up on the forum.
Actually, when I think about it, the mount is not much of an obstruction. I don't even really notice it while riding as I'm looking ahead through the windshield. However, that could change once I do mount a GPS unit on it.
Either way, I really do appreciate everyone's time to add their experience; it is helpful.
I'm in a honeymoon stage on this bike; so I'm in a learning mode/having fun and want to get the most out of her.
