I love the servo brakes on my GT. I did an Advance Rider course via the Airforce (Top Rider, and highly recommended, especially when paid for by the Aussie Tax Payer [Thanks everyone!!!] ) and repetitively out braked virtually all other participants. Not my skill, but the bike saving my arse. (And making me look good!)
I'm holding off on my purchase of the K1200S till the new models start arriving and I know I get the new braking system.
I'm actually speaking with my dealer in Townsville (highly recommended again and tell Marius I sent you!) tomorrow re organising deposit and trade on the 2007 bike.
Done know what I've done right, but even the wife hasn't said no to my upgrade!
Speaking of which, is there any female members of this list in Australia? Don't remember ever seeing a post from a lady.
I'm still not sure on the K1200S, vs. K1200GT, but the S has grown on me more than the GT. The GT is more of my type of machine in execution though.
Glad you are happy with the GS. I came VERY close to purchasing one 6 months ago, but again, theory vs. practice means a dedicated road machine for me. (130kms per day, highway, and no time to go off road. Longwayrounditis!)
My understanding of the changes for the early 2007 run of K1200S is:
New non servo assist Anti lock brakes
? Some discussion re bench seats???
??? New Fuel map??? Hope!!!
The air pressure sensor in the tyres
Unfortunately, I've seen no comments on HID lights or a new horns to replace the dangerous embarrassment fitted OEM (are you reading this BMW???)
Best wishes mate, and again, great to see some movement on the Aussie list.
