2006 BMW K1200S
I moved from a Ducati ST4s to the K1200s and the transition was a bit awkward to a wider heavier bike but I got over it and am having as much fun. The big thing I promote is the shaft drive. No more chain lube every six hundred miles or sorting through sprocket and chain vendors every few years. There are different service items with the final drive but I don't miss having to lube up before or during long trips or having to carry a lube kit with me. I pretty much just get up and go. When my KT1100LT friend heard I was thinking about moving on to the K13 he was very interested in the K12. But I am not quite done with it yet at 60,000 +/- miles. Ever since Ducati stopped the ST line I knew they had nothing that would pique my interest. I never liked the looks of the 'busa and the Kawasaki seemed a bit too tame. The adventure bikes were never quite my cup of tea either.
