After riding my Aprilia Tuono for 7 years I’ve been searching for the next perfect “check all the boxes” steed. I found the look and specs of the K1300R seemed to be the item to fit the bill. But alas, I live in the US and well... you know. So I started investigating outside of my style... The K1300S grew more and more appealing. Found a 2013, color I’m not passionate about but the price was extremely competitive. It also came with Akrapovic, bags, 2 top boxes, rear cowl/storage, Sergeant seats, rear back rest and quite a bit more of minor add ons. Flew down to Dallas from Tulsa and rode it home. Wow... is all I have to say for now. Looking forward to some time in the saddle and learning from you all. I’ve mainly ridden V motors. This is different. Keeping my gen 1 Tuono btw. Happy to receive any advice.

Did you say advice? I'd offer my humorous self-styled Beemer elitism...:devil:

My follow up posts will cover things like:

  • Buying the most expensive farkles in the world from Toura-Tech, just to have them.
  • How to make a tip-over look like you planned it to test your engine guards.
  • How to build online shopping lists for things you’ll never actually buy at Revzilla.
  • Getting your wife to ride with you: How to reduce your begging time from 4 hours to 2 hours.
  • How to never be truly satisfied with any aftermarket seat. The search continues.
  • Mapping all Starbuck’s along your route in your Garmin.
  • Prepping for your journey to your closest BMW Dealer.
  • How to truly look down on riders of Rotax singles & twins.
  • 90/10 tires are really for losers. I’ll show you how to criticize them effectively.
  • How to start a flame war by saying “Which Oil? Amsoil or Rotella?”
  • I’ll show you the best options for the most expensive auxiliary lights you’ll never actually use, except to demonstrate on YouTube videos.
  • CANBUS is now legal in all 50 States.
  • Which moto underwear is best to hide your love handles.
  • How to buy BMW Patches from China and sew it on cheap motorcycle gear to look like real Motorrad riding equipment.
  • How to avoid reading the FAQs on a forum and get to the “Meat and Taters” of finding out why your bike won’t start.
  • Where to order ADV stickers online to make your panniers look well traveled.
  • How to effectively describe why your bike won’t start on online forums by using key phrases like “Doesn’t start”, “Worked last year.”
  • Engine Maintenance? Bullocks! You only need seafoam and techtron. Those are tools of my trade.
  • How to ‘tickle the carbs’ on an old airhead bike without finding the hairy spot.
  • Reviews of those little plastic caps that cover the holes in the frames on a GS and which are better for touring.
  • The wet spots a K75S leave on the ground aren’t from the weep hole, but the women who melt when they’re around them.
  • A ride review of the 2018 G310GS that will be in dealers in 2022!
  • How Kratom, a herbal supplement, can be used to enhance your riding experience.
  • How to achieve a long lasting erection from a BMW heated seat worthy of a romantic night or a lawsuit. (Please don’t drink alcohol or use Cialis when using your heated seat.)
  • Bar vibrations making your mirrors shake? I’ll test bar end weights to reduce vibrations to get a closer shave.
  • Airbag vests: Getting that extra bounce.
  • If you’re over 50 it doesn’t matter which seat you have. Your bladder will need to be emptied before you get uncomfortable.
  • What to do when a PIAA owner shows up to a predominately Clearwater Owners Group” meeting.
  • Some people swear by using nitrogen in their tires. I use an exclusive blend of 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen,[1] 0.93% argon, 0.04% carbon dioxide.
