Grumpy Old Kiwi

As the title says, I'm a grumpy old Kiwi. Another grumpy old Kiwi mate has a K1200R that's done around 90,000kms and he absolutely loves it.

So I went out and bought one, except mines a K1300S.

I'm gonna lurk around here a bit and see what information I can gather.

First thing I have to do is get rid of that stock seat. Anyone else have problems with it?

I'll be back with many more questions I'm sure.

Cheers
Pedro

Re: Grumpy Old Kiwi

Pedro

Welcome to the site and K1300S ownership. Lots of useful information here.

As for the stock seat having ridden 875 miles over the last 2 days the proof of the pudding is in the eating - for me at least. Having said that I did have a Sargent seat on my K1200S which I did like.
