Bluegrasspicker, your point is? Love your stage name! Are you a banjo player? More info. please?
I.had my 94 K75 for three yrs and really liked it. I read about the K1200RS and thought it was a good move forward. I bought my 2000 RS 4yrs ago with 17K on it for $6500. It now has 45K on it, It honestly feels like twice the bike. Very glad I bought it and expect to keep it a long time.
You might ask this question on some BMW forums.
In parts/farkles alone, that's pretty well over half the price of the bike. Wanna see my invoices??? And that's not including time, not that easy to work on them clutches and tranny/RD seals.Lots of my time involved in that.:eek1
Bags do come up used once in a while, altough this is the wrong time of the year for that you can go look there:
Go for a test ride and watch them at low speed, they are heavy beasts. As for higher speeds well.....! It sure has the right tires/suspension.
Buy Buy Buy.....I am going for a ride on mine again today.
Shout out to big sur!
8,000 miles? Why don't you ride it?
I never understood why it is considered unrider like to go to a coffee house with your motorcycle... I ride about 10k mi a year and drink at least 5 gals of coffee when stopping before bustin out the twisties...
A lot of people just don't know what to do with themselves when they start riding. The idea that you use the bike to do what you want escapes them because they need to learn "the rules" that they then try to enforce on others.
I'm a coffee addict too.
+1 ..... though I only ride about 8k a year
I sure do like the Starbucks......
MMM coffee... I usually ride to coffee, food, motorcycle accessories, food, and then a few times a year PANCAKES..
Also for trips and enjoyment..
Who cares where people ride to as long as they ride and enjoy..
Posing. "Riding to Starbucks" is shorthand for being a poser. In other words, spending $25k on a bike and 'round-the-world-gear so you look really good when you ride a mile and a half to the Starbucks to let everyone see how adventurous you are. Then you sip your cappuccino in the air conditioning and watch people marvel at all the exotic places you have just come from or are on your way to, before you ride back to your house in the 'burbs, wash the bike and park it next to the minivan.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Real adventurers squeeze their coffee out of the intestines of berry eating bush-varmits. Everyone knows that.
It keeps the economy moving i like them. They spend money on parts they dont need and gear they dont need hopefully from small businesses and it just keeps the world moving. Probably a very small fraction of the world but it all helps
What I like is that after a couple years, their hardly-ridden adventure bikes go on the market steeply reduced, for vultures like me!
Naw, for most of us its just taking little digs at our fellow riders (at least as I see it). Kind of like always busting your best friend's balls on any little thing that doesnt fit the "norm". Made even more fum when the sensitive few start defending their actions. Just roll with it and have fun. We have one of the greatest hobbies there is!
Well, there is that, too.
What is the most active k bike forums? K1200r specifically?
