Touring on a K1300S
New to the forums, but riding for decades. My quick story: I have had standards or cruisers most of my life. Only BMW was a 1994 K75, lots of brands including two Harleys. About a year ago, I got a wild hair up my kazoo and bought a leftover VFR1200F at an awfully good price. All I can say is I have been kicking myself ever since for waiting so long to get a motorcycle with that level of performance! I love it. However, the VFR pretty much is lacking every conceivable creature comfort, and I miss them on long rides. BTW, when I say long, I recently went from South Florida to Austin Texas, solo (and wanted to keep going). The VFR is also not the most stable bike on the highway (not bad, but truck turbulence definitely gets your attention). From what I have read, the KS is very stable. Comfort wise, I can ride the VFR all day, but my throttle hand complains a lot after a while. Of course, I added a throttle lock, but they really only work well on flat roads with no traffic. In any event, I wanted to ask about all-day, multiple day comfort on the KS. I know the GT or RT will be comfortable, but I like less "stuff" than that. What say you?
