Motorcycle of the Year - Motorcyclist Magazine
Sport Touring Bike of the Year - Cycle World
This is the bike that all other Sport Touring bikes are measured against.
This is my 2nd BMW K1200 GT I've owned and my 3rd overall BMW motorcycle.
I'm a 60 year old professional that loves his motorcycles. I take care of my bikes. This bike has never fallen, has been very well maintained, and always garaged. I change the fluids every 3,000 miles with high grade synthetic oil, including replacing fluids in the final drive. This is by far, the best bike I have ever owned, and funnest too. Why am I selling? I'm upgrading.
