Long time motorcyclist (40 years ) who bought my first BMW motorcycle this past March. Previously owned many bikes that were either British or Japanese. Not a kid any more and not a large man I opted to buy a F800GT.
From a size and weight perspective the 800 appealed to me and I must admit it is a fine bike but at highway speeds being a twin it vibrates and lacks the all around power, that for me at least is problematic.
Certainly not a deal breaker but for those retro moments when I like to twist the throttle I find myself wishing for more.
Soooooo last week in my area a very clean, fully optioned, low mileage, ( 16,175 ) 2010 Red K1300GT became available. Not being even close to a BMW aficionado I was hoping for some expert advice from MOA members about that K bike and it's easy of riding for a rider of average skills and stature?
The asking price is $13,500
Thanks in advance for your valuable input.
