Couple of additional random thoughts -
Obviously the K1200GT is a lot faster than an R1100RT. 60-100 on full throttle is a lot of fun.
Agree to make sure that the various recalls were done.
Fuel connections at the tank were plastic when new, most of us have replaced them with the aftermarket metal ones, as the plastic connectors will fail.
Quite a few of us have converted the low beam to HID - generally viewed as a very good upgrade.
Shocks will be worn by 25K, so factor this into the purchase price.
Can you tell us more about the bike you are looking at?

However, it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles, either."
