I bought a new 04 K1200RS at the end of 04. Love it. The throttle feels like its connected to the smoothest powerplant in a motorcycle. Day long comfort. Quick through the twisties. Admiring comments from bystanders (its Alpine Blue and White). Surprise from bystanders when they realize its a BMW. Never going to sell it. Thought about it and maybe the new R1200R, but, couldnt justify selling a bike this good. I did get an 08 KLR to commute in the city though. Save the K for the good stuff.
