I'm a new member, just joined 2 days ago. The reason I joined was I'm about to trade in my 05 R1200 GS (today in fact) on a new, 08 K1200 GT. Although I loved my GS and have rode it cross county several times I'm ready to take it up a notch. I've test rode the K1200 GT several times and can't seem to get it out of my blood. I think I got a pretty good deal on the new bike since the dealer here in Colorado gave me $800.00 off plus the $1,250.00 more because of end of summer sale promotion by BMW. Getting the Deep Blue Metallic and will take delivery in about a week since the bike is still in the New Jersey warehouse and is being shipped to the dealer as we speak. I'm hoping I've made the right choice about swapping from the GS to the GT. I hardly ever rode the GS off pavement anyway. After riding the GT I fell in love with the power, smoothness and handling. I'm in the process of planning my next adventure going from Colorado to Calf. as soon as I take possession of the new GT. Looking forward to hearing from all of you.
