Update on 2007 K1200GT on the road

hi, Love the K!!! @ weeks ago , i left Seattle at 6AM, took I-5 down to Bakersfield, then over to 395, down to the 215, then on to 10 to Palm desert. I had some business there, so thought it might be kinda fun to see how the K did. i made it in 2 days- avg speed, 67MPH/47MPG by bike computer.
did my work, came back the same way , did it in 2 days about the same numbers---- now before all you "twistie" fanatics get after me, i was going to take 395 to Reno coming back , then up to Susanville, then to Bend , to Central Wa. then Seattle-- but there was a storm front all along the west side of the Sierra -so i chickened out....
Anyway the point to all this is, i have had absolutely no problems with this bike and think it is one of the best built ,engineered bikes out there.
Anyway , my $0.02 worth

Only problem I can see with it is trying to get back home before wearing out the tires so I can do my own tire change, ha.
