Damn, here we go again!

Well, I have been telling myself that this time I was not going to make the same mistake I always do--ordering the new model before it even reaches the dealers. Instead, I would wait until the second year, so that they can correct the bugs, etc.

But hell, I can feel the resolve slipping already!

...already doing the math on unloading the K12. I llove my bike, but this thing sounds unreal!

A month ago, I was thinking, no reason to tech up to the 13 and I ws perfectly happy. Now this! Arghhh!

I'll pass on the 1600, right now the complexity is on par with current automotive technology, which means anyone would be a fool not to get an extended warranty. I'm at the point now where I feel it's time to sell my K1200 and ride my Venom exclusively. I just feel the move to complex motorcycles is against the grain. I need my "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" and the new bike won't provide what I've been getting with 55 year old technology. YMMV

FUGLY. I prefer the K12GT2, unless I add 25 years to my age, that would make me 50 BTW.
