Hi this is my first post I'm based in Sydney Au. I've recently decided to add another bike to the garage, and are considering the K1200LT, purpose being long distance two up touring, I really love the look of this bike, but my main concern is mostly on reliability and power to weight, I see lot's of documented issues, how reliable is the bike? I already own a '07 XX Blackbird and absolutely love it for one up riding, it is awesome, power, handling, acceleration, reliability etc it's really a fun very powerfull bike to ride. What it does lack is the ability to tour long distances comfortably with a pillion. I'd like the best of both worlds (if there's such a thing) so I figure the blackbird stays for solo rides and I invest in a serious tourer for weekends away with the wife or son. Has anyone considered this option of a sports bike and a tourer? Any advice or expiences is appreciated. BTW - excellent forum!!
