    ROAD RUNNER...

    published

    I recently purchased my K 1200 GT... It is a big motorbike with a big heart... Very comfortable, plenty of space for touring away... Rides beautiful, shaft drive is a bit of the new (louder) thing for me (compared to my previous Japanese HONDA VFR800). But, CRUISE CONTROL is a god given... Set it and "relax" your wrist... Great Cruising. Maintenance and parts are a bit on the pricey side, but nothing comes free these days... Maintain regular servicing intervals and Reliability is known, I traced the mechanic that was servicing for the previous owner, and these machines easily go over 100K kilometres, 130K plus... Yes Cruise Control is a God Given, brings the heaven on earth...

    I bought my K1200GT 2nd hand with 63000km on the clock. It now has 126000km - all of them touring. If it wasn't any good, I would have changed it in 6 months. The only modification is Suburban Engineering bar risers as I was leaning into the bars a bit too much for my middle age and an Autocomm system with UHF. This seems to be a common extra for people my height 5'9" ish. The bike is riden hard, and shod with Metzelers or Michelins and has never given me a heart start moment. A large but very nimble bikecomfortabe from sunup to almost sundown.
    Will continue to own BMW K bikes and leave the Mean Streak for the straight roads and around town running.

    Good

    published

    Overall this is a first class touring bike - a little large for everyday commuting but with an unsurpassed level of comfort and style.

    I've put 2500 kilometres on one with mixed city/country riding and love it.
    Comfort, reliability. Excellent performance and handling and brakes are v good (especially with ABS) Good weather protection
    Expensive - exhaust & Cd player eats into pannier space

    Bad

    published

    fairly good but i dont advise in getting one.
    Nice fast and their is a fair bit of room compared to other motorcycles.
    bad things about it would have to be that the paint jobs that come custom made are absolutely pathetic.

    Would it be wise to purchase a 2003 GT model with 50k miles on it for everyday commute? What issues need to be addressed, in terms of maintenance? Are the Passenger pegs low enough for the pillion? Thanks
