After about 30 years I am a motorcycle owner again. I recently bought a 2001 K1200LT and am re-aquainting myself to the feel again. Two wheels are not new to me since I have been an avid cyclist for many years. My goal is not long distance touring at least in the short term. My wife and I look forward to riding the Blue Ridge Parkway and we plan to spend a few months this winter in Phoenix and I plan to take the bike and do rides of one on two day duration in the Southwest.
