A friend of Ken Jarvis has passed away, Brian Campbell, Brian's widow Gwen Campbell, wishes to sell Brian's bike.
Here are the details:
Colour: Blue with Silver
Mileage: 42,699 miles (US bike)
Contact: Gwen Campbell at 902-293-0028
Ken is familiar with the bike and reports that it is a nice well cared for motorcycle.
Brian's widow, Gwen, has mentioned that the bike has been well maintained and she has all the records since it was purchased. If anyone requires more details just contact Gwen.
I've looked at the attached picture and it certainly does look a nice, low mileage, well cared for bike. Also, in looking at pricing across Canada, the price is on the low side of what this year and condition would normally command, so if everything checks out it should be a good buy for someone.
2006 is the 2nd generation K1200LT (Gen-1 was 1997-2003 and Gen-2 was 2003-2008). Gen-2 upped the power to 116-HP.

Among the forty-four standard features included on the dynamically modified
K 1200 LT are a higher output engine, a modified gearbox, chrome package, a
redesigned instrument panel and seats, a new paint finishes, and an
electro-hydraulic center stand. Engineered for high-performance hauls over
endless lengths of road, the K 1200 LT offers one of the smoothest, most
comfortable rides imaginable.
Man's great dream of freedom now has a new dimension: the BMW K1200LT
offers unsurpassed luxury for gliding along in relaxed comfort on the
neverending open road. It also has the benefit of one or two innovations.
The high-performance engine delivers 116 bhp and 120 Nm torque for swift
acceleration when overtaking, even carrying a full load. The WAD spring
strut with travel-dependent damping increases ride comfort especially on
journeys when you have a pillion passenger and luggage. The seat has been
narrowed according to an ergonomics analysis to make handling more
convenient. Ground lighting makes getting on and off the bike safer. The BMW
K1200LT can also offer the world's first electrohydraulic extending centre
stand. All you need now is the time to enjoy it.
