Anyone got intellegence on this series? I currently ride an 04 R1150 ( which i love) but i eas raised on mid 80 Japanese super bikes. How are they on maintence? Any known gremlins? All the magazine reviews rave about them as a steal

Fabulous, trend-setting Gilber...
I had an 07 K1200GT for 4 yrs. it was the girl with the curl. When it was running, you couldn't believe what it could do -- the bike would invite you to do evil just to show you what it wanted to do. But when it ran out of warranty it just wouldn't stay fixed. They fixed a lot of the problems with the K1300GT (09-11, I think), but not all of them, and they are pricey.


Knowledge is not judgement. Intellect is not wisdom.
