I had to ask. Busting thru a few other forums here and there (they aren't much busier than this one lately), seems like anyone who rides a K1300S, buys one.
I guess I'm one of those riders at this point, wondering if there really is anything better. Of course I've had zero issues with this bike, unlike my shop-prone 2006 K1200S previously.
And it has all the goodies, I didn't have ESA before but I'm now hooked, don't much care what the replacement shocks cost.
But now I find out there is a HP K1300S available and I want one, sniff. Why? at my age I have no idea other than a quick suicide!
I know each rider is different in many ways, I always tell folks buy what you need for the mission you intent to complete, vacations, racing, all of the above, et el. I like all kinds of bikes (even harleys but I wouldn't buy one), but I dunno if the K13S can bee beat.
If it can, I may be the first person in line to buy it but don't see that happening for a very long time. ps...no K1600S please, thats just way overkill. I'm glad I'm not in jail already
