K1600 Reliability and Service Costs
I've tossed around upgrading from my '03 K1200GT to a K1600GT, but frankly have been really leery of the reliability of the electronics on late model BMW bikes - the 1600 is just plain scary in that regard.
Interested in getting some insight from owners of these bikes - how reliable have they been? How many times have you had the bike in for warranty work? How high does the dealer dealer turn up the wallet vac for scheduled maintenance service? Is there any maintenance you can do yourself?
