That is an awesome shot! Well done

6'02" but I've got a long back and stumpy legs.

The MRA screen is nice but I probably wouldn't bother with the vario extension - a simple double bubble would suffice and look cleaner I reckon.

Anniversary present

To celebrate my wedding anniversary a 30 year anniversary model in County Cork Ireland colours will join my stable at Halloween. Unfortunately r1200s and Sertao have to go as trade ins. Sad to loose the r1200s. Will post photo in due course. ( the cork colours is joke, the bike was already red and white)

So it would be like the Purina logo on a bike, with a bit of umm...

Hi guys, I just read this entire thread as I'm thinking about picking up a k1300s or r. I live in Canada so I have the option. Would be doing some two up riding on longer trips.
My question is...has anyone here rode both models? I would like to know the difference in riding positons as far as bending to the bars. I'm not as young as I used to be. I have a couple of old suzukis..80gs750e and an 83gs1100e. Will be keeping both fo them.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

Never ridden the S but have sat on several. I do have an R.

The S is just that little bit more aggressive in riding position. I am 6'2" and don't think I could deal with it for distance, the K is on the edge for me some days. Most of my riding (90%+) is done 2-up.

If you really want an S model there are several options out there for bar risers etc.

Where are you in Canada?

Hey thanks for the response. I'm in Victoria BC.
I will be doing some two up riding with this bike too (lots of day trips but my wife and I want to take a trip to California this summer). I have a great two up bike now but I want something new and reliable, with lots of power.These two bikes appeal to me in a way that other new bikes don't. How is the R for two up? I know that it isn't as agressive as the S model. I am aware of the risers being available.
Anything else you can tell me?

I chose mine with only ABS and gear shift assist. Traction control would have been nice, but that would have meant ESA, which I did not want. I will add Ohlins in a month or so, but other than that, it was perfect right out of the box. Power, quality fit and finish, comfort and style all in an affordable package, just what I want in a bike these days
Damn, I wrote this almost 3 and a 1/2 years ago and I still love this bike! That's almost a record for me
