It's a lot of bike. Probably a little much for what I require but insanely fun none the less. Thanks for liking it.
Joyce, it is a beast. I like to compare it to the BMW M5. Power for days but so massive it's not fun in parking lots.
I did ride the R12GSWater while it was being serviced. Great motor but I have become too familiar with the long wheel base of the K. I don't think I'll ever change bikes. I'd like to add a touring bike though. Maybe I'll test ride the K1600 next.
