Comparing a motorcycle like the BMW K1200LT to a luxury liner is a bit of a double-edge sword.

I ride a 2009 K120LT. It is a great bike but still top heavy. Nothing I've ridden will compare to it as a long distance touring bike.

I had an '03 LT and I agree, it was rather top heavy. Why I got rid of it though was that due to the riding position, my hips used to cramp up. (Sounds strange, but it's true) Anyway, my current ride is a newer Goldwing and as nice as the LT is, it honestly can't compare to the Wing as a long distance mount. I do miss having a BMW though, and depending on the next gen LT, I'd love to get back into their camp. What bothers me still though is their ever dwindling number of dealerships. Break down in the boonies and you could be SOL. Whereas with Honda, if a town has a McDonalds...they probably have a Honda dealership. Ride safe
