    Finally Did It

    Traded in the old but basically perfect 96 R1100R:

    From R1100R



    For a 04 K1200RS with less than 4000 miles. Almost bought a new R1200RT but I had to give the a K bike a try. So far the K is AWESOME! Can't wait for Spring!

    From New Bike


    Would have loved to keep the old R but just don't have the room for two bikes. I was pretty bummed about giving her up after 16 years of ownership - but much of the sadness went away as soon as I got on the throttle of the K.....

    How about dankbike for a new moniker?

    Congrats on the K, Yep you'll miss the boxer a bit but the K will do just fine for ya. I did the transition from airhead to k to oilhead. To be honest I liked the first 2 far more. I also had the K far longer than any of the others, go figure.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I'm thinking I'll stick with what I got as I still have a car with a boxer engine as well.

    I still think there's another boxer in my future however but I'm going to give this bike a chance for a season or two.

    And - thanks for your service.
