Longtime BMW rider, first time 1600

I have been riding my K1200LT for almost 10 years and have loved every minute of it. Had an opportunity to purchase the 1600 for a good price so here I am.

Welcome to the 1600 and this forum! There are many former LT riders on this forum, my self included, that have transitioned to the 1600, as it is quite a bike.

'07 K1200LT (sold 9/24/16)
'74 Suzuki GT750L (long, long gone)

Welcome from Minnesota!

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous.
It is however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence or stupidity.
