Well, I pulled the trigger yesterday!
I traded my 24,000 mile 2003 K1200RS, white & blue beauty with matching blue painted bags, for a 2006 K1200S in granite grey.
I think the deal was ok. The new bike has ESA, ABS, heated grips, computer, sport saddlebags (FREE!), BMW Nav III GPS (FREE!), centerstand, and Throttlemeister. The out-the-door money difference...tax and everything, was $10,300.
The deal-closer occurred when I called home from the showroom floor asking my wife, Peg, for her final input on the decision. Her comment? "Well Chuck, if it's worth it to you to spend $10,300.00 just to go FASTER, then do it." Sounded good to me.
