K13R Newbie

After waiting patiently for 5-6 weeks. She has arrived!

Brand spanking new, just 30 miles on the clock. Looking forward to years of fun

Some additional bits and pieces on it are: Ilmberger CF Rear Hugger, Givi Rack and all the R&G Protectors I could find.

The last pic is next to my old Hornet, to be sold in a couple of months.

Re: K13R Newbie

Welcome and a pretty darn nice bike. I really like it. In many ways makes more sense than the S1000R.

Re: K13R Newbie

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'll mostly be commuting through traffic on this, but hope to get out for some fun in the next week or so.

Been loving the amazing photography you've been posting Trevor!
