Having lived with a 1966 BSA Spitfire with Amal GP carbs (later changed to Amal Concentrics with only low end improvement), and a 1965 Norton P11 with a K2F Magneto, I awake from my dreams about those cycles with a prayer of thanks for the K1300S.

Up until you have nightmares about some sensor going out.

I choose not to live in the matrix, even if they have steak and wine.

I guess you wouldn’t be so paranoid if everything wasn’t out to get you. 😁

There is a big difference in being on a BMW, and being on an old Norton and knowing you will have trouble.

I choose to not worry about Nuclear war, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, tidal waves, solar flares, lightning strikes, mad bombers, or sink holes either. Personally, I charge fearlessly onto the unknown roads armed with my cell phone, AAA card, credit card, and tire repair kit - the modern rod and staff. Just sayin.

I don't get it- do you actually hate your bike? It really does feel like it. Just sell your fuel injected nightmare if you don't like what it represents/technology contained within!
It's a love/hate thing.

No I do not hate my bike, I hate the industry. If BMW had made this bike carbureted from the factory, it would be like the lord himself had created a motorcycle.

Perhaps write to BMW. You never know. Tell them to make a K1600R at the same time...
It's not just BMW either. They couldn't legally make and sell a modern carbureted bike because of idiot rules pushed forth by an idiot public.
