Hello everyone, Just purchased (6/13/08) my first BMW after riding rice burners all my life. 2007 K1200gt with 2700 miles. Fell in love with it after the test ride and the rest is history. I was reading some of the posts here before I went to check the bike out and it really helped me make my decision. I noticed the "clunking" most readers are referring to during shifting and the rather abrupt compression braking when easing up on the trottle. I hope to be able to overcome those tendencies as I get some miles on the bike. I can't wait to get the bike registered and insured this week and experience what the bike has to offer. Bike is the charcoal grey color with ESA, computer, cold weather package, top trunk, Autocom communication set-up and tall windscreen. Hope to learn a lot from this forum as I stack up the miles. Nice meeting you all...
