I love my K
I have been riding for 35 years.This is the best bike I have ever had and may be the last bike I will ever buy...maybe.I am 55,so..I have had a couple of serious reliability issues,all fixed under warranty,and I bought the extended warranty just to avoid further nasty expensive surprises.Clutch slave cylinder leaked,engine and transmission seals,headlight(!!).
This is a heavy,powerful bike with somewhat rigourous ergos.My experience,it wears out tires quicker than I expected.The seat and riding position are on the sport side.OTOH,I have ridden 800 mile days sequentially.600 mile days are routine.The power and handling are unbelievable.
There may be be better,more powerful,more comfortable bikes,but I don't care.This one does it for me.A bit of a wild pony that I approach with caution,cause it may not be completely tamed.
