Au revoir and thanks !

Hello All :
I wanted to say THANK YOU to the members and administrators of this forum; it's been brilliant and I am sorry to have to leave, but leave I now must. The reason is that my K1200GT gives me pain in the hips and the only solution is a more "upright" riding position.

I have tried the new GT but I don't like it. So my choice is ..... the Kawasaki GTR 1400 (Concours 14 in North America).

Thanks again guys, I truly appreciate the help and advice given this past year.

regards

John

Sorry to see one of the brethren go! You made a nice replacement choice and I would probably make the same choice my self if forced to leave the BMW faithful. Enjoy your new ride. :-)

Can't blame ya.

After getting scared to death after my second ABS brake failure I'm leaving the GT forever. I picked up the 08 Concours 14 last weekend. It's awesome and only $12,000.
Sayonara!
