K1200R 50,000kMS should I????
Hi K bikers,
I need your advice. I've just sold my R1 and I'm looking for my new bike. No more super sports for me. I live in Australia and when I do trips with the guys we are talking thousands of kilometres. 10 hours per day type stuff. Yes I did this on an R1 and I'm 6'3". Anyway I've been testing nakeds as I still want the sports bike performance in a more ergonomic package. I've so far tested

So as you can see going through the naked class. not tried the Tuono yet but not going to. Price range to high. Anyway I have always had a soft spot for the k12R and the K13R. A 2007 k12r has just come up on a bike sale site for good money and looks mint. It has so many goodies too. One owner etc etc. the thing is it has 50'000 Kilometres on the clock and this to me seems like it is getting high. I mean I will own the bike for about 3 years and put another 30,000 on it. T&IS is my dilemma. Current favourite bike is the latest speed triple but they go about 13k and I have found this mint condition k12r for 10k. Should I go the extra 3 k for the speed and have a better chance of resale or save 3k now and hope I can sell the k at 80'0000 kilometres. That is quite high do you guys think. I know BMW bikes go forever but still trying to sell a bike with close to 100,000 on the clock.
Sorry this is my first post but I could not really find any K bikes with more kilometres on than this on any forum.
What do you think??
Just need some rational thought from those who know. Thanks heaps...
