Not surprised at the stats
Thanks for setting the poll up! I'm new to the site and the K1200 (I should be picking up a brand spanking new gold 2005 LT on Monday, if all goes well) but certainly not to motorcycling. These poll numbers confirm what I think is an intuitive understanding about owning a machine like the K1200, or any BMW motorcycle, for that matter: the owner of a bike like this is not typically the first time motorcycle purchaser looking to discover whether riding is for them--or not. No, I suspect most BMW owners have previously owned other machines over their lifetimes and "graduated" to the BMW in a progression of refined tastes and preferences for their riding needs.
I'd like to see a pol about this? Got any extra time handy to create one? *wink*
Thanks again for the poll--and by the way, I'm dead on "average." Ah, but what the heck--I am soon to be blasting the highways and byways from Nashville to Reno and I can assure you, there'll be nothing average about taking those trips on my new K1200!
