Lurking since 2001.....

Hello from San Francisco!

Started lurking here in 2001 when I bought my '01 K1200rs. Now that I've added a '15 K1300s I've decided finally to say "hey there."

Just returned from a 2000 mile trip through Kings Canyon / Sequoia National Park / Death Valley / Utah / Nevada / High Sierras, and the K13 was amazing. It impresses me every time I'm on it.

I followed the forum's advice and added the Clearwater Darla lights--and they are amazing, especially in the desert darkness.

Now looking for a top case and backrest for my passenger .... not too many options out there, it seems.


'15 K1300s
'01 K1200rs
'13 MV Agusta F3 675 (glad to sell it!)
'98 Kawasaki ZX1100 (holy shit!)
'86 Yamaha FJ1200 (first cross country trip)
'83 Suzuki GS550L (bought one of my brother's bikes)
'81 Honda CB900 Custom (traded up to dad's bike)
'81 Kawasaki LTD250 (learned to ride on mom's bike)

It's about time!

There's never enough time to do it right... But there's always enough time to do it over!
This is only a good thing when applied to riding... or sex!
