Change of heart

As some of you may recall, I had decided to sell my K1200S. Of course, someone on the forum was convinced the bike had problems. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The bike had been at the dealer for the past several weeks, with no bites. So, I figured I'd get it out of there and eBay it. Well, after riding it again, I realized how phenomenal this bike is and decided................TO KEEP IT.

Of course, like a shmuck, I sold the Remus Ti system, so I'll be aquiring another.

It's good to have it back.

Congratulations, Mal... and unless you're a hard-core Remus fan, you may want to take a look at the new Akrapovic system also: http://www.akrapovic-exhaust.com/mai...ts-catalog.htm

Good for you. Nothing wrong with a little indecision. Assuming you can afford the associated financial losses.

Thanks. I did look at the Akra. I've had several of their systems in the past. But, I don't care for the look. Also, although always suspect, the power gains look better with the Remus, and the Remus I had before performed VERY well with monster midrange.

Although not the best bang for the buck, I prefer a full Ti system. I like shaving 13+ lbs.
off the bike.
