My RS should be here soon

Hi guys

I am a K1200LT rider and very active on the LT forum, back in December I bought an RS but have since sold it. The RS was an awsome bike but it did not have the edgy supersport I was looking for. It felt more like a lighter LT to me.

So I took the plunge and got me a brand new BUT 2005 K1200S. Indigo Blue fully loaded from my boys in Daytona. Bike should be here end of next week so I hope.

So be ready to get lots of questions from me I much rather hear from previous owners than from dealers sometimes.........

I am in North Atlanta, Cumming, any of you out there want to hook up and head up the mountains let me know

The blue K12s are much faster than the other colors. I had ordered a silver one
but after riding a blue one I got it instead, no regrets.....

Obviously you haven't ridden a Blue/White.

MUCH FASTER

That is why a Blue K1200S is called "THE BLUE FLAME"

Same reason that BLACK Honda CBR 1100XXs were called BLACKBIRDS The BLACK CBR 1100xx bikes were a LOT faster then any CBR1100xx that came in another color. Everyone knows THAT!

Gray Instead

Well I ended up getting the gray one. Basically they had two 05's left one blue and one gray. Got a call on Saturday saying that they had a customer on the showroom floor interested in the blue one, would I take the Gray one instead..........So I said slap a set of saddle bags on her and I will take her.............DONE!!!!!!!

Gray was not my first choice but since I am getting the $900 set of bags for it, which matches the gray better than any other color I said OK.

So should get it soon, but gray instead

Well Color me Purple!

Congrats. I'm in Ellijay - pm me sometime and we'll hook up.

TWO? Deals Gap? Cherohala? So many places, so little time...

North Georgia on a sportbike...ahhhh', it's magic I tell ya!

Good color choice - I can go through rainstorms and the bike still looks
pretty clean a week later.
