I agree.bmwhd said:I will place my money on the K1600GTL being it as far as top touring bikes go from BMW for a while. The gap between the use profile of the GTL and the old LT is too small to justify it. The incremental sales - people that want a BMW tourer but don't fancy the GTL or RT - wont justify the development and production costs.

It's not an LT.
It's a K16GT/L.
Why talk like the LT is dead?
Do you think BMW will produce another LT?
Of course they will!
Give them another year.
I'm on record as saying I'm not a typical Goldwing owner, but I own a 09 Goldwing and had an 05 before. I also have a 2010 Concours (had a FJR before it). To me, the new GTL may be the perfect bike. What I need is a good two-up bike. But my wife only rides with me six months of the year. The other six months I take the Goldwing out just to keep it from dry-rotting in the garage.MattKas said:One thing for sure is that this new K1600GTL does NOT seem to be targeting Goldwing crowd. So no more competion with Goldwing?
Can't agree more.DarkMeister said:Here's hoping that BMW is fully aware of what we won't readily admit - passenger comfort is the key. Said passenger, in many cases, yays or nays a bike purchase.
