    Use your centerstand as you like. If you're in a level garage, the centerstand is fine. It has a smaller triangle footprint than using the sidestand does and is less stable, but you already know...

    Sure, my recommendation is to stay in Curry Village rather than the Housekeeping area, but either works fine. No need to bring a tent that way. From there you can ride in and around the park. If you...

    I'm partial to the 2010 K1300GT flavor. Lots of kinks worked out, bigger engine, a heck of a lot of fun to ride. That was my decision when I went for the 2009 model. Have really enjoyed it since....

    Don't have the side panels, but do have the Aeroflow windshield. Actually swapped the original yesterday to see how it was compared to the Aeroflow that came on the bike when I purchased it. The...

    K1300GT praise on the BRP

    Went for a quick up and back run to the Pisgah Inn last night and must commend the bike for its handling of the strong crosswinds. Bike was always well-mannered, firmly planted, even when the stiff...

    A fun ride in North Georgia is the Six Gap loop. You can do it all day long. Wolf Pen Gap road is part of it and is Dragonesque. http://www.sixgap.com/

    Ouch, I know that hurt, in more ways than one. I can only empathize with the situation. While I didn't fall, a few years ago, I had just left the dealer with some brand, spankin' new Metzlers on my...

    You're correct, it does seem like an odd "replacement" for the 1300GT. They should keep the 1300 in my book.

    K1300GT Rider's Manual on iPhone

    My bike didn't come with the manual so I downloaded it to read. Then it dawned on me that I should add this to my iPhone in iBooks. Captain Obvious strikes again.

    And with the lights on. Sure, it might be "pimpin", but it does make the bike more visible. And yes, I have also since added some black 3M reflective tape on some of the black panels around the bike....

    Have to agree. Did the same thing using white LEDs sparingly and it is much easier to see the bike at night. First photo without lights.

    I'm thinking some of the lower elevation sections, i.e. Virginia may be possible. The higher elevations, i.e. North Carolina would be dubious, especially around Mt. Mitchell and Mt. Pisgah. Riding...

    Have no clue, but it'll be a high number, that's for sure. Many of them would be single vehicle too.

    If the rig was stopped covering the entire road, which it looks to be from the photos, then the rider may have had no options. It's easy for us to be armchair quarterbacks, but the Dragon has many...
