We looked at about five different K75's and yes, they are top heavy. The R1100R I got her must have come with a factory low seat because in its lowest setting she's completely flat-footing the bike. I'm so happy for her because she's always wanted a BMW but it was hard finding one I could pay cash for.
I own a '02 RT that I love as well as a '06 K12s yet I get a big kick out of riding her bike. The weight is okay and it handles and brakes quite well. Anyway, as long as she's happy I'm happy.
