Talking New K1300S Owner in Port Macquarie, Australia

Hi there. Just picked up my new K1300s in Sapphire Black from Rock Motorcycles today.
I traded my 2010 Harley Fat Bob and could not be happier. It's my fourth motorcycle. My rides previous to the Harley were a Kawasaki ZZR 250 then a ZZR 600.
The K1300S is an outstanding machine and I look forward to doing lots of miles with her.
This forum has been a very valuable source of information prior to my purchase so thanks for all the great discussion. Ill try to work out how to post photos etc.

Congratulations Sean, I have the same bike and could not be happier with it. You have one hell of a motorcycle there.

Please post pictures of your bike and where you ride it, we like to live vicariously through the rides of others.

Re: New K1300S Owner in Port Macquarie, Australia

Welcome to the Forum Sean.

Glad to have someone else in Port with similar taste. I think we bought the only two K1300S this year from Rock's.

Hope to get together for a ride.

Frank

Welcome to the site. Congratulations on the new bike - and you bought the fast color - actually is there any other color.

Congratulations. And yes...laboratory tests show that the silver is a hair faster...but just by a hair.

Two things - I hope you have not used that lab - if so you have paid good money for bad info - and second - I go back to - is there any other color than black.

Sean:
I'm not an expert - are you saying you get the message uploading directly from your phone to the gallery here? Or from your phone to another site first? I take pics with my phone - my camera and upload to the gallery all the time - no matter what size or res to my knowledge and everything goes just fine.

Thanks for your reply Bruce. It says that my images exceed the sites upload limit of 542KB. The single photo i am trying to post is 1.4MB which is fairly standard.
