Default K1600 I got the fever!

I had to stop and check out the K1600GTL at the local dealer yesterday.

What a beauty! I wasn't in riding gear so I couldn't take advantage of the offer to ride it. (BTW, very nice how the local dealer instantly offers a ride on a 28k motorcycle).

It's very polished. Everything is detailed down to a gnat's a$$.

Of course the waiting list is a mile long and I don't like paying full price.

The K1300 has new tires and fresh oil and will serve me another year.

2012 will see a six cylinder (motorcycle) in my garage.

The San Diego dealer has 23 Pre-orders and started a second waiting list for people who could purchase if someone gave up their pre-order position.

I'm gonna ride one at teh Escondido dealer today. I'm not sure what their list looks like.

Yeah, real sweet of them. Of course, they remote-scanned your Amex Black card as you walked in the door, so they know you'll be back.

You change your oil once a year?

It's special oil that is really slippery and needs to "grit up" a little before it works properly.

It'll flat spot those bearings if you're not careful.

Buz changes his oil every 3,000 miles. So, yes, a year is about right.

The tour truck came to SLC BMW and Todd (from the podcast) and I went for a ride on that monster.

Wow. That's a pretty impressive piece of technology!

But the way the seat was set up, I think I enjoyed the HD Ultra Glide better.

So, when you get the new bike, Buz, who gets dibs on the 1300?
