Newest K bike owner

Well, I did it. I am now the proud owner of an '02 K12RS in Pacific Blue with 10K miles for $7800 I have waited a very long time to own a Beemer and it feels great. I was surprised that after a long time thinking the RT was my ultimate bike I really fell hard for the K bike when I drove it. Very smooth, decent wind protection without being stuffy, great power, ABS power brakes, cruise, heated grips - wow! But of course I'm preaching to the choir here........ Pick it up tomorrow and the fun begins. BTW, if you know of anyone that wants to sell a set of hard bags let me know. This doesn't come with them and I think I'll hold off a bit. I'll mount my Givi topbox and maybe pick up a set of soft bags for now.

I've always said....you have to own one to fully appreciate the level at which you're riding at now.

Good Choice

Here's what I use at time when I don't need side cases. It is a Tour Master combo tank broken down and used as a tail bag. Their two bag zipped together are just too dang tall

I paid alot more than that for mine less than a year ago from a dealer. But, it had some farkles.

At LEAST you bought the right color! Everyone knows that the Pacific Blue color lulls the cops into 'feeling calm', "Hmmm... my radar must be wrong... that's a lovely bike."

I started 11 months ago with 10,200 miles. 26,300 today. I LOVE it.
