New baby, New member

Hello Everyone!
I just checked in to this elite group.

I bought my 2006 K1200GT last week.

Here's some pictures of my bike.

No, I had a 1978 /7 and a 2002 R1150RT. I'm feel remorse for trading in the RT. I like to keep things.

It would be a hell of a first Beemer though, wouldn't it?

I have to say that I really like that color bike. I have the crystal metalic which I love but I really wanted at first the graphite.

Anyway.. welcome. It will be fun to read what you think as you explore the new world. I had a 2002 R1150RT and later a 2005 R1200RT and I have to say that my GT just really kicks ass.

Yes, you'll want a new seat though.

What are you going to do for a tank bag?

And are you getting the Navigator III? I have highly endorse it.. such an improvement over the Navigator II.

Gorgeous... welcome to the jungle...

It's not the speed that kills, it's the rate at which the speed diminishes...

Welcome to the crowd Thump and thanks for the pics. You'll find several recent threads on seats (mine is the latest) and tank bags. Since it's so new a model the farkles are few and far between, but hotly debated here!
Cheers, Greg
