brought home the new baby today!

I brought my new-to-me k12gt this weekend and took it out for a quick spin today. We had decent weather here in South Dakota mid 50's... not bad for winter. It only has 8k miles on it, and I cant wait to get out riding!

Nice piece of painting on that, too. 8k miles? Not even broke in yet.

Get a radar detector...you'll need it.

Nice paint job!

You won't need the radar detector, they'll never be able to lock on!

Seriously, have fun, and good luck with the LLE!

Nice bike, you did well, even if it is the Second Fastest color! I got mine with 23K over a year ago and I was pleased with the limited mileage, 8K is not even a years riding.

Congrats! I got the same color (minus the flames) in 2005 and put over 20k on it in less than a year! Smooth power and reliable handling. So many grins in your future. I would recommend caliper mounted moto lights as they give you improved lighting and a much more unique light signature on the road.

Again, congrats,

Gravity

Congrats

Very cool paint. You have to take some pictures in the sunlight...........and find out who did the job. I just love ghost flames. Have a ball!

Love the flames, dude. You just can't go wrong with some flames on your bike. Glad to see you got the fast color as well. Enjoy!!

Start with GadgetGuy or try the "Search" function on Radar Mount

Frame sliders? Uh...don't think there are any. Don't know of anyone that has them installed

BMW, even though they'll charge more than aftermarket ones

Aux. lamps. Also, see if you can raise the level of the headlight with the adjustment just to the right of the headlamp cover (white lever for level adjustment and a knob in the middle of the lever for actual adjustment of headlamp)
HID conversion
Oval mirrors (like those on a K1200RS)
Chicane tail bag
