Southwestern Indiana Newbie

Hello all, 43+ yrs of riding, just bought my first BMW, an 2006 K120GT, pick it up Friday, little less than 34k on the clock.

I have ridden my buddies 2004 K1200GT, so I know it will be close to that, found a deal online at a dealer and took a chance and put money down.

I can wrench about anything that breaks, lot of bike work in my past.

Looking forward to "leaching" a lot of knowledge from you folks.


Well got the Cashiers Check for the bike and was headed home got a call from the dealer selling it stating it had a brake warning light on and they couldn't sell it until it went to a BMW dealer. I should be getting my down payment credited back.

I think the boss seen the deal they cut or someone walked in the showroom and offered up the original pre-negotiation price and they jumped on it. I got them down about 15%.

So I spent more and bought a used K1600 instead. Their loss, my gain.
