Having owned the first 1200LT I now have the updated one (2004) the tweaking that has been done ie more bhp, the forks brought in,narrower waist line, better brakes. makes for better o/taking,manoeuvreing,comfort & stopping.power.
The seat of the new one is not has comfortable as the first model I had, I feel it would be better with a sixth gear to get a less reving engine & something to stop the brake calippers from making a clattering noise over rough road surfaces.
Overall the BMW K1200LT are good long distance tourers and bikes you can throw about for their size, with plenty of luggage space & economical at 50+ mpg no matter how hard it is ridden. Yes, I would buy another.
