Finally made it!

Hi All, I've wanted a BMW sport touring bike since I rode an '01 K1200RS in 2004. After a recent suggestion of my wife to get a bike I came home with this 2009 K1300S... and I love it. All the options, and well cared for. Thanks for all the great info on the forum!
David

Re: Finally made it!

You remember riding that RS?

Well, this is very similar but first, before riding it, you need to set your wristwatch back a couple of minutes to allow for the induced time-warp.

Have fun.
