Floor Lighting Actuation? (Newbie)

As a new owner of a 2009 K1200LT (great ride!!!), I have read the BMW Lux. Touring Community web-site with great reverance to the dedication shown by its members for assisting others. Thanks to all contributors.

I have owned my LT for about 5 weeks and have 2K happy miles on it. On July 6th, I'm leaving on a four week, 8K+ trip out west, I sold my R1200C Montauk and I'm wondering why I didn't discover this great ride (LT) before.

I have been looking for information as to what triggers the floor lighting to activate. What are the conditions that allows the lights to come on? To my knowledge my floor lights have never come on. ,

Welcome aboard!

The lights on my '05 come on when I shut the ignition switch off... and it only happens when the bike was in the "dusk to night" mode.. In other words, the dash is illuminated.

So, if you ride at night but pull into a well lit garage, you may not get the "courtesy" illumination.
