Would like to introduce myself and say hi. My name is Jon. I just purchased a 2002 BMW K1200LTC. Not my first bike....I started off in 1995 with a 1979 Kawasaki KZ400. I paid $400 for it but got about 40000 miles of riding out of it! Ended up giving it away after I joined the military and didnt have time to ride it anymore. In 2008 I bought my second bike, a 1999 Ducati 900 SS, which I currently still have. Its a GREAT bike...for about an hour, then its time to take a break. I wanted a bike I could go long distance on. The BMW is what I found. I was torn between this and a Gold Wing, but couldnt find one in my price range. I have a few tech questions about the bike and Im hoping this forum will help me out. I look forward to meeting you all!
