From a K1200 to a K1300...
I've been a proud owner of a 2007 K1200GT and have loved every minute of riding it. I've ridden all around the Bay Area and have commuted on it down to Silicon Valley. On various trips, I've gone from San Francisco to Oregon, SF to Phoenix and down to LA countless times. I use my GT as part of the Motorcycle Safety team for the AIDS/Lifecycle and can't get enough of riding it.
That having been said, it's eight years old and has 138K miles on it and like any older vehicle, more and more things are going wrong and it's costing me more and more
I have an opportunity to obtain a 2009 K1300GT. It's only got 9,870 miles on it and it's in excellent condition (verified by the local BMW dealer). They are asking $10,995.
I would consider the K1600, but that darned thing is just too expensive.
Can you folks help me out and let me know what you think? I would love to hear some practical advice.
