Hi Filodian, well yes have had it since mid February. Hmmm well it has a fantastic motor just so smooth and such a linear power curve,you can beetle around in 6th all day. The downside is it has a very clunky (noisy) drive train i.e. where the gearbox drives the final drive. I would suggest you take one for a ride and note this.It is big (for me) feels huge compared to my R1200GS and big even to the K1300GT.(even though it is about the same size)
Don't know, I would suggest ?? maybe wait till BMW have done an update (version 2) and they will have fixed the final drive lash.
Another on the plus side it is so bloody comfortable, riding back and forth to Melbourne (300km) it just glides along, stick the screen up a bit and it is fantastic. Have a mate with a FJR1300 and we swapped the other day, would not swap the K1600GT for 10 FJR's !!
Did I mention the motor is fantastic ? Suggest you take one for a ride, Southbank has a demo.
ps did I mention how smooth the motor is ?
