I have a 2003 K1200LT-E. It's my first BMW. I've noticed there seems to be quite a bit of error on the speedo/odo, about a consistent 7MPH across the range whn compared to the GPS. The dealer says this is an "intrinsic trait of the brand". Is this accurate or fabrication?
Also, gear box seems a bit "clunky" and I've hit neutral on the upshift from 1st to 2nd several times, although the upshift issue appears to be diminishing. I figured it needed to run in a little.
Fantastic bike, though. I'm coming into this bike from 24 years of riding sportbikes and the handling is superb for a tourer.
