I just order a new K1200 LT . I am presently riding a 1100 Honda Sabre and decided to go for some luxury on those long rides. My betterhalf always complains when we go for more than a hour without stopping. I live in south western Ontario Canada, in a snow belt area and our riding season is from early May to late Oct. I am hoping to extend my riding season with this new bike. I have toured down to N.C. to the dragon's tail via the Skyline, Blue Ridge Mts. and the Smokies Mts. Hoping to go the east coast this summer.
