Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

My 2014 K1300S MS, bought in December 2016, is just back under warranty for 'hot start' fix.

Spent a week on a loan R1200R - great punch out of slow corners, but happy to hand it back; two pots just ain't enough.

Meanwhile, I've been using my 1997 K1200RS Taxi - still running like a Bentley after 55,000 miles and 21 years - they don't make 'em like that anymore.

Evidently many still do: (71% of 344 respondents at the time of this reply).

Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

I still ride my 2007 K1200S. Had to get the transmission rebuilt at 25k miles. Got around to updating the airbox and then flashed the ECU with BrenTuner to get it all sorted. I ride it daily to work.

Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

I have retired from riding at age 82 earlier this year....The kids pestered me to death.
I had two K75s and consider them the smoothest bikes ever. I now have a pristine 1999 Mazda Miata and it assuages my withdrawal from biking nicely.

I liked the choices before they were screwed with. I was one of the choice 7's and indeed actually still have a K-bike, not "other bike". I believe it originally said, "I have so many bikes it doesn't really matter" which is true with many others keeping the K company.

Yeah, the OP's intent was 'changing' K demographic and where people are. In this case, #7 was a duplicate of #2, thus it results in an inaccurate representation - hence the subtle change. Regardless, we'll hybrid #7 to your liking to keep everyone 'happy' . We're all about keeping folks happy @ the loving I-BMW.com even with inaccurate voting tallies...

Damn, and to think I figured that my opinion meant less than the janitor around here.

Sadly, my K and I are at a decision point. I still love my bike but it appears that the main seal may be starting to leak. It makes little to no sense to spend much money on the bike, and without the time and/or know how to make the fix, it appears that it might be time to be moving on.

I own a 2003K1200RS that I bought new. To satisfy my urge to buy something different, I just ordered a low mileage 2007 R1200S! I am expecting delivery in two days.

Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

Every once in a while I get the itch for something different but when I go out in the garage and see that K13 or when I take it for a ride I realize what a damn nice bike it is and I'm lucky to have it. Would like to have a second bike with a little more off-road capability (and perhaps a third?) but that's an internal home issue... I only have so much time to ride anyway.

Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

Bought my 04 K- GT in 2008. Only BMW I've owned so can't give opinion on other BMWs.
Gave some thought to something newer but only have space for one bike.
Love it,keepin' it.

A side benefit is it led me to this site. Many wonderful people hang here

Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

I barely used my K1600 GTL for any long distance rides, so I decided to sell it and replace it with a HP4 which suits me better for my local riding.

As much as I laughed at Vics response to your question... You DO deserve an answer.

Years ago, we had a very active Jomomma and it was very active, sometimes over enthusiastic political posts. Well, the BLPD means "Bush Lied, People Died". It is a sarcastic response which many of us chuckle at... somewhere along the line, it just became part of every poll throughout the site. It is added by people of all political ideologies so it's more just humor to those of us who used to joust quite regularly in Jomomma.

I hope this helps.

Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

I've had my share of "K" bikes, but will no longer entertain one. The perfect stable for me is exactly whats in it now! I possibly will upgrade to a WC GSA at some point. The Tuono Factory is to me far far better than any "K" bike available in the market place.

You will never know how much you made me smile �� you’ve gone from a K to an Aprillia factory bit like getting divorced from a middle aged wife and going to live with a Porn star enjoy it while you can because the one cert it’ll end in tears

Looks like it might be time then to moderate the GS sub sections here on a 'K' bike site I suppose

Probably best in the name of the 'enemies, foreign and domestic' thing

Christ, did this thread go downhill.......but @ 600 votes & 73+% 'K bikes' here, that's an expected tally

Re: K bike, still own one, or what do your ride now?

2009 K1300s original owner. 33K for miles. First 20K was a learning curve love/hate relationship. Long wheel base and para lever suspension woes. Don't think I'll ever part with it now. I'd like to add a 2012 Aprilla RSV4 in Pussy Magnet Yellow to my garage. Factory color!

"K bike, still own one"? How about, "K bike yet"? I'm still straddling my '70 R50/5.

And William is very happy! The wife is happy and Sarah now wants a bike. Life is good!


Thanks Mani for keeping my son's bike in fantastic shape for him. It is truly immaculate.
