BMW K1200 GT
By JC(Owner), Sep. 25, 2008
I have had the bike since new. Also had an introduction to the 'different' front suspension on the first day when the bike had to be tailored back to the shop for an extended stay to get it to stop wobbling at speed. Later I have found out that it is nice not to have a front end that dives when brak... Read Full Review

Great Used Buy
Sep. 8, 2010
I found my '04 flying brick on EBAY, and have been thrilled with it. Have owned or ridden all the Japanese makes and Harleys, plus some older BMW's over 40+ years, but never a machine with the incredible performance and handling of this bike. Prefer the inline 4 - 16 valve "K" to the tra... Read Full Review

Still Impressive After All These Years
By LeawoodEsq(Owner), Sep. 1, 2020
I bought my 2004 BMW K1200 GT in 2006 from Engle Motors in Kansas City. I keep it in a garage on a BMW battery tender. The motor pulls strong from just above idle and can handle a third-gear launch from a stoplight if necessary. For a 2004, it has everything: cruise control, adjustable seat height, ...
