Look What Followed Me Home Yesterday!

After much deliberation, I finally decided on the K1300GT, and I have to say I am glad I did, I put 500mi. on her yesterday. I cannot wait till next weekend when the break-in service is complete and I can take it up to the mountains and really break it in! Wow this bike handles, 500mi. and there are absolutely no nubs left on the sides of the tires on this baby! The first thing my wife said when I pulled into the garage was, now aren't you happy you didn't get the Kawasaki? YEP!

Congratulations! May it bring you many years of joy.

...but I can't resist teasing you about rubbing off those nubs riding the twisties in those rugged Nebraska mountains.

That does sound kind of funny doesn't it! Actually I live 14 miles from the Colorado border. I bought the bike in Loveland CO. Contrary to popular belief there is at least 4 turns between my house and Loveland! Of course I have to turn around and hit them multiple times!
