New to BMW
Right now I'm in the market for K1200LT, in the area where I live (Jakarta, Indonesia) those LT is quite rare, currently there are only 4-5 units available on the market and all of them is 99 LT, with various condition and most of them is low milage (below 23k KM).
I've been doing research about this bike (mostly in this forum, tons of info), I also already consulting with a BMW specialist mechanic that formerly work at BMW Motorrad Indonesia (now he open a private workshop not so far away from my home) so in the future he will handle my bike for maintenance routine and repairing according to authorize workshop standard.
I did testing the LT a week ago, my first impression it was top heavy only when I put my foot down, so the solution is never put down my feet on the ground til I reach my destination (lol). But when it's moving, instantly I made the decision to own one, my frame is quite big for Asian (187cm/90kg), mostly I'm doing for city riding (goin to the mall, hang out, etc) and doing big trip (2 up with the wife) hopefully once a year (my first trip is riding to Bali Island - 1.200km distance from Jakarta).
And for daily riding (my home and my office is only 1KM away) the traffic in Jakarta is one of the toughest traffic in world, lots (millions) of moped and scooter, an my riding style is quite agressive. And also the weather is very humid (tropical) around 37-40c. And also I'm quite familiar with German auto (I do own and maintain various Mercedes Benz from the last 10 years, from the oldest w108 350SEL 1971 til W221 S300 2008) I just love the S Class because it's so comfort, spacious, luxury and that's is what I saw in BMW K1200LT (and because Mercedes Benz didn't make Motorcycle haha).
So, thanks for letting me join this forum. I'm looking forward ride the LT real soon (already made an offer for a few LT in here)
