Well, after much comparing, test rides, making offers, wife approval, and, yes, even praying, I now have a 99 K1200 LT in the garage. Just did a little 100 mile jaunt thru some Texas backroads and, boy, do I like it !!!
Beats the Valkys, Wings, FJR, ST's, & of course the Harleys hands down. The only other bike that had a chance was a Victory Vision Tour, but at double the cost of this 99, it was a no brainer. And that means more shopping for farkles; I already removed the trunk
and will be fabricating a rack for back there.
Ordered a 16" CeeBailey Sport shield and will decide on a Corbin asap. After I get a service manual, I'll tear into the Tupperware and replace plugs, filters, etc.
One question, if it's best to leave these "flying bricks' on the center stand, then why do you check the oil level on the side stand ?!!
Ride safe and watch the idiots!
