2000 bmw k1200lt

Selling my BMW K1200LT. Too heavy for me.

Here is the Craigslist link.

https://lexington.craigslist.org/mcy/6101391207.html

I bought a Triumph America.

Thank you - Lee B

8,851 miles on a K1200LT that is 17 years old? That's insane! How does that happen? Hehe....

Well that's certainly a big departure from the LT.

Re: 2000 bmw k1200lt

It sits a lot...

The person I bought it from was about 3" shorter than I am. He bought a Vulcan 900...

I put almost 5k on it in 2 years. Too busy to ride more. We're hoping this year will be more fun.

I have been trying to talk her into a Moto Guzzi Roamer V9. Doesn't like the heads in front of her knees... Cadre Cycle has one for sale right now, 26 miles, with Agostini pipes for $7,500. Oh well.

All the bad rubber has been replaced. When you don't build enough pressure to trip the ABS it's time for new brake lines. That and the leaking fluid...

Went to various dealers looking for something else. Doesn't exist for me.

The Triumph was a friend's. It had 1,900 miles on it 4 years ago, now up to 7k. Came with TOR pipes, Viking bags and a few other goodies. I have the center stand, new steering head bearings and a set of Progressive shocks from a bike on the lift.

They are selling all of their bikes. He has knee replacements, has trouble moving and riding.

I like the newer tech, I just don't like the configurations. Closest bike that the missus and I can agree on is the Ducati Diavel....

I was perfectly happy on my V65 Magna. Still have 4 of those.

PS - When one of you rides a touring bike and the other one rides a Suzuki Intruder the rides we take are kind of predictable.

Have new Michelin Commanders for the Triumph. If that doesn't improve things I will look for a K1200GT.

After I get a Magna running.

I wasn't sure I would like the BMW...
