    I'd go for the K1300GT, not the K12, if that is the direction you are headed. They got some more of the bugs worked out with the K1300GT. Don't have any experience with the 16's.

    I paid out of pocket to replace the airbox on my '05 K1200S. My '06 K1200GT had the airbox done prior to me buying it, (airbox was date stamped '08) and it failed/warped again according to my local...

    Yeah, looking back I should have kept the K1200RS, and never test ridden the K1200S......... Oh well. Live and learn. With my neck issues, the RS would have needed bar backs and it was still a bit...

    That's what I was thinking! If they can absorb bladder contents, surely they would handle a little sweat!

    I enjoy the power and sport-touring aspect, but with 3 bulging disks in my neck need to be fairly upright, or I might have gone for a R1100S. The older "K" styling doesn't do it for me, so decided...

    Goodbye to "K" Bikes

    Well, after almost 8 years and 4 "K" bikes, I am leaving the brand for something less high tech and weight. I can't afford a third airbox/stepper motor in the '06 GT, and really don't need the 2-up...

    "Booster Plug" is an after market gizmo that basically fools the computer, making it think it is colder than it is, and richens the mixture, or at least that is my understanding. They are available...

    Very common on this bike. I have an '06, and the air box and stepper motor were replaced in '08, and have warped again. I tried adding the "Booster Plug", to no avail, though some guys have had...

    I normally look at State Parks when planning the route. State parks, not forests, have showers and such, at least the ones I have been to in NY, PA, WV, and TN. I like that Park Rangers can arrest,...

    Anyone know what time the drawing takes place? I can't find anything about it being webcast. I guess normally the prize drawings at the rally are late in the day to allow those attending the chance...

    I don't think so, like any gambling loss it is not a deduction. However, if you win something, you can deduct the cost of the loss (ticket price) from the value of the prize. At least that is how I...

    If 6500 tickets sold, at $100 each, that amounts to $650,000, and the prizes are valued at roughly $275,000, so how are they not making a profit this year? I know they had a good bit of advertising,...
