Re: MCN-Wing beats K1600GTL?
I read the original article and quite frankly, I've never used an article like that to determine what bike I wanted to ride.
About 10 years ago, without reading a review, or reading any bike forums, I was in the market for a long distance cruiser. HD made it difficult to test ride so I never rode the Ultra Classic, Honda made it quite easy and I took out a Gold Wing for about an hour. 30 minutes into the ride, I felt like I was on a lounge chair. My next demo was the K1200LT and after about 10 minutes the decision was made.
Over the years, I made a few changes to the 02 K1200LT and wished for a few things that were not possible, but continued to love the ride. I liked the looks of the bike too.
When the K1600GTL was announced, it appeared to be exactly what I wanted the K1200LT to be had I had a magic wand. It took about 1,000 miles to get comfortable and now after almost 2 years and 12,000 miles, I know I made the right decision, for me.
12 K1600 GTL
02 K1200 LT (gone but not forgotten)
