Trailering a new K100GT
Just picked up my new 07 K1200GT in Denver last week, traded in my R1200GS that I was not riding off road enough. Love the new bike, especially after installing the Heli Riser for the handlebar and the Suburban Machinery foot peg lowering kit. The bike now fits me very well and as soon as my Cee Bailey +4 +2 arrives I will be set. I am 6' 2" and the standard set up left me a little too cramped.
Riding the GT here is the mountains is a blast. I have put about 330 miles on it so far and love it. I live in Summit County, the highest county in the US and the bike performs unbelieveably well. Can't wait to see how fast it is a sea level vs 10,000'!
I plan on using my Kendon trailer to haul the bike to Tucson for the winter and had some questions on where to attach ties to the bike? On my R1200GS I attached the front ties to the Telelever and it worked fine, but on the K1200GT there is little room to attach to the suspension, so I got a Canyon Dancer setup for the handlebars that gives you an attachement point. But the Heli Riser came with a disclaimer for trailering with ties to the handlebars. Frankly, the bolt up arrangement on the Heli Riser and the substantial nature of the setup looks better than the BMW OEM setup, so I can't see what the problem would be. Anyone else tried to trailer a new GT and where did you attach the front ties?
