At last, my '07 K1200GT SE is finally in my hands, and in my garage. The 15 mile trip to the dealers on the LT turned into a nearly 70 mile trip back on the GT
. I took it on all types of road, dual carriageways, main roads, country roads, through urban areas, in traffic, on nearly empty roads, and I am certain of one thing - the GT speaks to my soul in a way the LT never did. I liked the LT and if BMW hadn't brought out the new GT, I would still own my LT. But the GT is just so much more FUN........ (about 200 smiles to the gallon I reckon
For those intersted, the SE in UK has the Xenon headlight, as well as the other toys, plus I got the tall screen and the top box. I have already decided to get the topbox painted to match because, while it looks exactly the same in some lights, in others in looks close yet not quite (if that makes sense). It is also a satin finish, unlike the gloss on the bike - so, its a spray job (and the quote is only £100 including the paint - about $170(?) so definitely worth it). That will be done in about 2-3 weeks, because the paint has to be ordered in. I have attached pics of the topbox and panniers so you can see the current colour match (or not). BTW, the truck in the background of the main photo is my Ford F150 King Ranch pick-up They just don't make 'em like that over here - it's a cracker.
