Looking at a couple GTs
I have a K75S now, am looking to buy or trade for a 07 K1200GT.
Option #1 used 07, less than 1000 miles, about 2 yrs warranty left. Besides the normal BMW option package they "all" seem to have, this one has a larger aftermarket windshield, peg lowering (brackets?), and handlebar pullbacks. Previous owner about 6'2, I am only 5'9, so I might not need any of this though. Why would a bigger guy put pullbacks on? Especially with adjustable bars?
Option 2 is a NEW left over 07 with of course new 3 yr warranty. Price is about a grand higher than the used 1000 miler.
Only think heavy on my mind is if I pull the trigger on this, will I really trade or sell my K75?? I bought it new (1987). Tough choice. Oh well, am trying a roadtest on these GTs this week, will have to make a decision soon but not for a few days anyways.
Dealer says I can ride both of them to compare the two.
Have heard many opinions either way on the GT. Would you buy yours again? How is the weather protection especially in cold weather? Those heated seats really do anything for ya? My K75 has heated grips and yeah those are nice to have!
