I'm looking to buy a K series BMW. I've never owned one but have ridden a few boxers. I always wanted a K series though. I know very little about these bikes and as I'm going to dip my toe in at first to see if this is something I still enjoy so will be looking at used first.
I'd like to know if there are any years or models to avoid and why? I'm interested in late 90' to mid 2000 decade. How different is the flat four to the slant four? When did the change occur. Why do you think one is better than the other? I'm not interested in the LT's as I'm not ready for the rolling arm chair set yet but may be in a few years. What are the differences in models? Probably wont do more than 500 miles in a day for now and that's after I work into it.
So I'd appreciate any thoughts or comments even if it's just p**s off. Thanks
