lengthy ride. Still tough on the wrists at low speeds, but a real sweetheart on the highway
and like a lot of bmws it feels better the fast you go
A year later and the K gets better with every ride, especially after the last s/w upgrade
smoothed out the FI issues. I still use the GS for touring because of its better luggage capacity, and a relaxed feel to it. Slightly better range too.
The K bike is a real hoot, and a looker that gets compliments all the time. These are the first 2 new vehicles i've purchased,and i'm pretty happy with them.
