Lightbulb Good News Only...

It is so nice to hear a good review. So many, ( and rightly so) have complaints. Every one should post their experiences...BOTH good & bad!

So on this thread, only good news. We don't wanna hear nothing bad...we have the mid east problems & bmw's mistakes enough for a life time...

What Say you that is good?

Not K1200R related, but my K1200GT is the best motorcycle I have ever had the pleasure of riding. 8000 miles and nary a single problem whatsoever.

Good news

I know this is the R board, but I too have have had 27k miles of riding pleasure out of my K12S. It is the most comfortable high performance bike I've ever owned.

I've ridden my S across the western U.S. and it never seems to disappoint me.*

*Your smiles may vary.

Keep a high visual horizon,
Bob

2nd KR

Sep 2004 Intermot - Surprise Roll-out of the potential K1200R. Good News for naked bike lovers!

June 30, 2005 - Surprise from my dealer. He pre-ordered a non/non K1200R for me in his initial allotment. Sun Yellow (soon to become the Black Beast).

July 29, 2005 - Took delivery, rode 600 miles. Returned for 600 mile service Aug 2. No problems.

May 17, 2006 - Insurance and BMW Service declare K1200R (Black Beast) non-repairable (following low speed pancake with a country boy driven truck...too complicated to explain). Pickup and ride off 2nd K1200R that day.

June 30-July 17 2006 Boise and Back on K1200R. Virginia to Idaho and return. No Interstate Highways. Worked like a charm. New tires in Loveland Colorado at 6K miles.

And that's just the highlights. Every time I ride the smiles get bigger.

Well I for one have nothing BUT good things to say.

Some dude parked his Ferarri next to my KR the other day at Fashion Island, got out and drooled all over my bike for a while.

Couple of girls wanted to know if they could take pictures on it.

I beat the hell out of a Lambo that wanted to race me Newport Coast drive three days ago, I thought I got the whole thing on vidoe by my f---ing archos crapped out again. I wish I had it. The guy eventually slowed down and wouldn't dare pull up next to me at the light so he stayed 30 feet back.

The brakes have saved my life at least once.

I have put more miles on the bike in two months than I did on my previous bike (Honda 919 Hornet) in two years.

EVERYONE who walks or drives by it says: "Nice bike!" with a shocked look on their face.

Now you see me, now you don't

Well I did not say we could not talk about the problems. I was hoping for a condensed compendium of attributes and accolades for the k Series. AS for Mr. Sterile ( SS..the fascist hypocrit) don't get me started
