Well....sold my 1999 Valkyrie with 9100 miles on it, rode my 2006 K12S into the dealer here in orange county for some work last weds (tires, oil, etc)...didn't really want to spend more money on the K12S so....
hemmed and hawwed, I know I should have bought one of those nice GT's on the floor instead, some low miles, more than fully loaded, etc...but they just look so big! (I had an LT so I know what big really is
Two K1300S's on the floor, one an 09 and one brand new (blue/wht/blk)....I drove the new one out. I'm not really riding 2-up anymore (SO got the convertible) so I bought what I like the most for the riding I do.
Ok, I don't wanna hear the K12S and the K13S are the same bikes. Close in many ways (ergonomics, etc) but all the mods I did to my 06 (shocks, seat, PCIII, etc), the K13S has accounted for all these things, so far.
Amazing what a few years can do to a machine!! I wish I could say the same for my old tired arse
I have a new saying...you know yer gettin old when you can ride better than you can walk!
They were double checking the odo however and apologetic they couldn't offer me more money, I was just glad to get enough to pay it off....it had 89,000 miles. I was hoping to put 250k miles on that thing, maybe this time if I live that long
I've looked at everything out there, for months, thinking, trying em out.....apparently I'm going to be on a K bike the rest of my life cause "I just can't quit you baby (thanks Led)...and I ain't gonna put you down for awhile either, just an awesome machine in every respect.
catch me if you can bro!
oh yeah...got my levers, headlight cover and windscreen swapped onto the new bike too.
