New K bike owner!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself. My names Mike and I am an Army Veteran and live in Columbus Ohio. Ive owned BMW cars for a long time but this is my first BMW bike. I bought a 2007 K1200S with ESA, computer (was surprised that was an option?), and hard bags. 14k miles with great history. Before owning this, I owned sport bikes but wanted something for longer rides and still had power. Thanks to this site, I have been able to change my oil (amsoil) as well as my final drive fluid (mobil 1). I swapped out the tires for the new bridgestone BT023. Tires have been great so far. I look forward to talking with you guys. Thank you much

Mike

Welcome Mike, and thank you for your service!

Enjoy the bike - the K1200/1300 are spectacular bikes, smooth and powerful.

Hi Mike, welcome.

I've always liked the K1200S, sounds like you've got a nice one.
