First pre-order for a K1600 at my local dealership. K1600GT light grey. We'll see how long it takes!

Did you get a price? I'm curious to know in what price range it is.

Bests Regards

My wife just calls the bike "The Mistress" as in "Are you running off with The Mistress again?"

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I've had my money down since October. At the time I was undecided as to which model I wanted, now I'm about 80% certain it will be the GTL. The deposit is refundable, in case they price it north of 30K. Anything below that will probably work.

Safety package (ASC, TPM, adaptive headlight) and GPS ready, for certain. I've forgotten the other options that I chose. They only option that I wasn't interested in was the security and linked locking system. I made the mistake on my 07 GT to skimp. I've regretted not having the ESA (now standard on 1600), ASC, TPM, and heated seat. I ride in winter rainy conditions much more than I imagined that I would.

Dealership is not sure but I can always bail if it is too rich for me. I'm afraid that my pricing tolerance will continue to drift upwards as the wait continues... The reported Canadian MSRP that I saw somewhere here looks encouraging, though.
