K1200S on Dyno

Funny story ! We had a Harley ride day in Horsham on Saturday and part of the deal was that anyone could do a dyno run for a $30 donation to the Redcross.
After a few bikes had done the run including a Ducati 999 my turn came.I was out on a test ride at the time but people viewing the run said that the technician nearly fell off his stool with astonishment when the K1200S was on test.A few of the locals went home and got a Blackbird and a R1 (oldish) and others.The K1200S still won the test,we tried to get a Hyabusa but none available!
cheers Andrew

Glad it didn't stall while on the Dyno. What did the numbers say?

A few guys I've gone riding with who don't know much about the beemers get quite a surprise with the 06 K1200GT . One mate who rides GSXR 1000 kept bagging me for buying such a big, heavy, slow bike until we went out for a days outing thru the Dandenongs, Warragul and back home thru Korumburra plenty of tight corners and fast sweeping bends, he was shocked that l kept up with him on every bend and straight. He couldn't believe such a big beemer could corner and accelerate almost as well as his lighter sportsbike. He hasn't said one negative about the bike since that days ride

K1300gt

Well done Andy ! The limiting factor is always the rider I think,usually the bikes handle much better than the ability of the rider.As you have proven!
The K1200S was very good and handled very well the K1300GT is fair bit heavier etc but boy is it comfortable!Must admit I really miss the K1200S so whoever purchased FE862 from Southbank motorcycles got a really good well looked after bike.
cheers Andrew
ps why not come up and give the Grampians a try ?Great roads and to many police
