Well, you are correct in every respect.
I went to Irv's to get my 06 tires and oil, plus a re-check of the brake repair i had just paid 100's to get fixed at another dealer about 5k miles ago.
The bill was looking to be 7-800 minimum but could run another few bills depending on the brake problem. I figure it was just some adjustments but...
hemmed and hawed for awhile, sales and everyone else helping me out for a couple hours deciding if i wanted to fix or ride new, or maybe used.
they had two really nice k1300s's there, one 09 that was used but had great accessories on it and then the brand new one on the floor (blue/white/black colors), loaded.
sold my honda valkerie today in pheonix, traded my 2006 blue/white K12S in and I'm back to owning one bike now.
what a diff in all respects from the K12S. amazing machine. And most importantly, I'm back to spending money on tires/oil changes instead of a constant maintenance stream.
I spent that money on a new rainsuit and some accessories I needed.
The K12S had 89K miles on it by the way, they were all laughing at me at the dealer when they were appraising the bike, I think they turned it off twice to recheck the odometer, I was watching just to get a laugh
