Just bought one on eBay from Italy. I can return it for a refund if it doesn't work. Too bad the girl doesn't come with it.

Well, I'd like to know if it feels very light, whether the sizing corresponds to other brands, how much you paid and where you got it.

Went to my local dealer to look at the 2014 K1600 sport. I asked him how the new RT's were doing. He said every one of his allocation was presold. They are very good looking bikes.
