Hello from Snowy Shropshire, England

I have a K11LTSE amongst my collection but thinking of losing some weight, early K13S are not expensive over here so compiling some background on bike. Friend had one and was most impressed.

Re: Hello from Snowy Shropshire, England

Welcome, now is the time for a pint, no riding. Hope you and the family are all okay in the nasty weather there.
I agree about K bike prices. Last night I found a 2011 low miles for 8K$, might go for 7500. Really gave me a heart stab. I live K bikes. Know them and really do not see anything down the line for me. My riding days are numbered and a fresh K13S would be just fine.

Re: Hello from Snowy Shropshire, England

Welcome to the site. I had a wonderful few weeks in and around Shropshire two years ago. A fair amount of that time was on a bicycle. Ironbridge and Shrewsbury were particularly interesting, although the rural countryside itself was wonderful.

It is great for both cycles and motorcycles...and I do both! You need to love hills though....
