Am I obsessed?

As I've just bought my 11th k1200lt !
Had a couple of RT's this year but really missed the flying armchair so am taking a flight up to Scotland (Aberdeen) to pick up my next one.
Am really looking forward to my 550 mile journey home.

Re: Am I obsessed?

Should it be asked why you'd had so many?

Seems like you'd be a strong candidate for President of the LT fan club, if there ever was one.

Would you say they've been reliable machines ?Void of the problems voiced by some here?

Yup - I'm intrigued too, because you've been a member here since 2003, and if that equates to your first K1200LT then you're averaging more than one per year?

I bet he doesn't like to go through the hassle of washing all that tupperware. When they get dirty he just slides in a new one. That's my guess...........

11 sure does seem like a bunch!

Re: Am I obsessed?

Yes, sell them when they get dirty....
I just like to change my bikes a lot, I like variety....but the LT just keeps drawing me back.
Of the LTs I've owned I've never experienced any major issues. However as I only do a few thousand miles then pass them on, maybe I'm not the best person to comment.
It was great to pick up my new one yesterday and ride 550 miles home through the night. I sat on it (haven't owned one since 2012) and it just felt sooooo RIGHT.
I LOVE these bikes.

Yup, that is how I bought my LT, but it was only 430-450 miles. Still nothing like the adventure of bonding with a new bike on a long ride on unfamiliar roads.
