Picked up My New S, Yesterday!
I have had a deposit on an '07 K1200S for about 5 weeks and yesterday my dealer called and had an '06 come in in Blue and White.
I originally wanted the Blue and White, but all were "Gone". Anyway, being end of the month and end of the model year, they offered a screaming good deal. Also, no new word on when the 07 K1200S will even be here. Jan or Feb, possibly.
So, I pulled the trigger on the '06. Rode it about 80 miles last night and what can I say that ya'll don't already know! AWESOME Ride. I just wanted to keep going and going.
I had a friend here and we swapped bikes so he could experience the K. He drives a 02 GSXR 1000. Nice bike, lighter, more nimble, much more cramped riding style. After I got back on the K, what a difference.
Of course, I thought I was going to be the only one at the "Goose" with a K. But saw a grey one there and another blue and white one. Both owners where happy with their bikes and talked about riding to Arkansas and how much they enjoy just going.
So, I look forward to doing just that. Pictures to follow, but most of ya'll have already seen the blue and white many times already.
Great info from this forum!
