K1200S rider: 42, 6'1", 205 lbs, excellent fitness (ice hockey & mountain climbing)

Bought the bike new in 2006 as a 32 yo, 6'1", 195 lb, even better fitness rider. The weight doesn't stay off like it used to.

35 yrs old 6' 4' 230lbs incredibly fit with no health problems and my wife doesn't mind that my two mistresses have moved in with us. Wait - too many have seen me on the Australian rally.

63 6'2" 220lbs no health problems and I live my fitness vicariously through my kids.

How is the wind on the S1000R with the micro fairing up front? she will get blown off past $1.80.
Try 2nd or 3rd gear roll ons at 100km.........

Go on then, buy a motorsport before they are all gone, ring feral and he will talk you into it. I give you $100 for the red thing, about the same as the stealership will offer.......

Haha .. MS is too dear, might grab a secondhand S but wont trade the R....trade in would be woeful...Paul is already looking at a bike in SA for me, no rush just gonna see whats about, new Black K13R are reasonable price too....not many around though
Wind blast is pretty bearable on the S, quieter in the helmet than my bike...but we don't go over 100 very often...........

Re: K1300s Owner Profile

Hmmm, K1300S owner profile. Years are based on purchase date.

2007 K1200S, 49 years old. Walked in and we just had to have it. Beautiful!!
2011 K1300S, 53 years old. Replacement for momentary lapse of reasoning.
2008 K1200S, 54 years old. Actually liked the 12 over the 13. Feels lighter, pull better off idle, raspier cam.
2015 K1300S, 58 years old. There was a GS in between there but this is a K1300S profile so ....., K1300S power, rheostat throttle response. power, smoothness, power. Call it Benjamin Button syndrome. At 60 (when did THAT happen?) I installed Helibars. I want an S1000RS.

K1300S since 2011, will not give it up nor trade it in as they become collectors!
S1000R since 2014, just to pretend I can still handle road to road useless but fun missiles!

Figures update...

50 - 6'- 172 (goal achieved!) - still very good

Update: Age 70. I believe that makes me one of the senior citizens here. Weight down from 195 to 170. Excellent health. Just did the dragon and the Cherohala. See you at the Vintage Races at Barber MSP where us vintage guys look at all the vintage cycles we used to own in the museum.

69 in Dec., 5'-11", 185 lbs. Very good condition.
2014 K1300S. I leave Oregon on it in a couple of weeks to ride through Colorado on the way to Austin, Texas to watch the USGP Formula 1 race and then ride home by way of San Diego and up the West Coast. It will be 5000 miles, a little over two weeks with a couple of days down for the race. Life is good!

Smile K1300s Owner Profile

Bought mine new March 6, 2010. Have currently 54,000 miles on it, but is one of three BMWs in garage. I'm 6'1" at 195# and 67 years with 53 on bikes. Love to take it on longer trips such as three day weekend campouts/rallys and the BMWMOA National. The only changes I've made was Nautilis air horn, rear riser plates (25mm), and Garmin Nuvi 500 GPS. The K1300S and the '74 R90S (also bought new) will always be in my stable...

Re: K1300s Owner Profile

56 6ft 85kg - 187lbs. Fitness ok except back and knees (bilateral high tibial osteotomies).

Had the bike a year and like it very much. Should have bought a lower km model with a proven history, not a dealership salesman’s promises�� lesson learned.

Have installed R&G sliders, Tech Spec tank grips and a nice new bmw tank bag today bought off Gumtree for half price - thanks KiwiMat ��

Will have its 60,oookm Service next week that it should have had before I bought it.......

Was riding a Triumph Sprint previously (work vehicle!) and a long time off bikes before that except borrowing ones or work dirt bikes in Borneo. Oh, and the dt200 we had when we lived in t country.

Re: K1300s Owner Profile

OLD.
Working on 72. Love my K bike. Loosing weight lately, BP down to new standards on my own. No drugs. Best reason to loose weight is every 7 lbs. is = to 1 HP gain on the bike.
Weigh much less than 40 years ago, only because not much sounds good to eat and drinking with out limits ( ) is not so good. Used to bench press Harley engines, now maybe lawn motors.
Getting old is interesting. I still love fast bikes and tech stuff. Show me a problem and I'll work on a fix.
A tight set of corners and my S1000R bike, beech
(Oh, did I mention I was getting shorter? That is why I bought the S1000R, it is a small little bike, think LAUNCH CONTROL)

Re: K1300s Owner Profile

55, 6'1", 260lbs, working to reduce donut consumption. First post, first K bike. Been riding all my life. Have too many bikes in the shop. 3 bmws, ktm, suzuki, honda, buell, that other one...what is it called? let me go down to the shop and see...oh ya hyosung. Just bought a 2015 K1300S MS and have only put 20 miles on it due to this extended sucky winter in upstate NY. It sits in my living room as I make it my own.

Anyone going to the 2018 BMWRA National Rally in Wellsboro PA.?

My daughters are definitely older than many of you youngsters (early procreator). As one famous Louisville native said "its better to be shot out of a cannon than to be squeezed from a tube, that's why god invented motorcycles bubba".

6'2", 212, 75 & 7 months, decent for a old geezer and I intend to wear out before I rust out.

58, 6'5", 270lb, porkily healthy, one careful owner, some fur missing, and minor scuffing to the bodywork.

On my second K, about 5-8,000 miles a year depending on circumstances.
