Poof.. I am now on the dark side!

So today I traded in my R1200RT '05 with nearly 20k (good miles!) for a 2006 K1200GT!

No, I haven't ridden it yet.

Yes, I am picking it up this evening.

I am already in love. She will not disappoint me.

I will post my first impressions later this night. Stay tuned!

Are you in for a THRILL.

Welcome to the other side, where it may be dark, but we have seen the light and it is GOOD!

I went with Crystal Gray. I couldn't believe how cool that color was in person.

Besides that is all the dealer had.

Got 4k on mine after 10 weeks of riding. (I'd have more but I must work to afford gas)and just got the software upgrade. yes, I noticed some difference. after 35+ yrs of riding harleys, I've seen the light to the dark side. 54 yrs old, and a kid again!!! every mile a thrill. enjoy, and BE SAFE. don't trust a single cager out there. they think you are a serial killer and they are the executioner.
