I've 98% decided I want a K1200LT, a later one with motorised main stand and other extra comforts. Why?
An essay follows to read if you're interested in converting me to be a BMW rider??
Well at the moment I'm sat typing this with a broken leg,,,
Hahaha no I mean I'm not actually using a broken leg to type this that'd be silly, and painful.
I mean at the moment I have a broke leg, (my 1st ever) with only another 5 weeks to go before I get the cast off hopefully?
I'll be 60 next month and therefore almost grown up and well, like many I too have been there done it and got far too many tee-shirts. Most serious was a fractured spine in 2004? on a Yamaha FJ1200 which wasn't actually my fault, hence wanting a later K1200LT with motorised main stand.
My present bike is a 2002 Honda Varadero XL 1000V which I've had and ridden regularly since 2005. It has been, and still is a great fun bike that will go just about anywhere I point it.
But now, as I say I'll be 60 next month and having had 3 operations on 2 knees so far, having had a fractured spine and now sat here with a broken leg and maybe looking at another operation on the knee whit said broken leg I seriously think the time has come to change my bike (or just buy a used K1200LT for longer rides) and slow down a little now that I have a partner who absolutely loves going every and anywhere on the back of my bike.
Give up riding a motorcycle !! ?? Are you mad of course NOT
I'll be looking through, NOT Trolling, through this forum for what I should be looking out for BEFORE I buy one.
I've made a start by looking at this on YouTube in the hope that it'll be a start?
Thanks for, or should that be sorry for taking the time to get this far, well what else have I got to do
