Welcome aboard Bernard. Congrats on the new ride. Most post right into the K1200LT forum at the top. Lots of good info here and support if you have a problem (which many never do).
Newcomer advice on the LT is never come to a stop with the front wheel turned or she will dirt nap on you. If parking on the side stand, leave it in gear and use the stand to kill the engine. Hold her up right for a few seconds to let oil drain from the cylinders, roll forward taking up slack in the drive train (you were in first right?) then lay her into the stand. They have a bad habit of rolling forward off the stand if you don't.
Explore the world above 6,000 rpm in the twisties after you used to her and she will be like new bike to you. First gear is good to about 62 mph (then you hit the rev limiter).
Enjoy the ride!
