New Owner Wantabe

I am in the market for a used K bike and was looking for some input on the questions I should be asking myself on chosing which model.. RS/GT, year...ect? I rode a Honda ST1100 for a season and am now on a Harley, this would be in addition to the Harley.

I owned a ST1100 for 10 years. Loved the bike. I test rode a 2002 BMW KRS and I was blown away. Sold the ST100 and bough the KRS.

Since 2002, I have owned only BMW's, seeling the KRS for the 2006/1200GT and now the 2009 /1300GT. These biles are easier to handle than the ST1100 and have better smoother power. If you get a used RS/GT, you will absolutely love it....

K1200RS.......but just be warned that they need quite a lot of maintenance ! Not expensive if you do your own, but time consuming. Going to a dealer for it can be...
Once done however.....

And try to find one with good Aftermarket Shocks on it, the OEM are ..... from new and only last 25,000 Miles at best.Unless Santa is really good to you this year, you may not like the price of Ohlins or similar.
