This is a serious question. I bought an '08 K12GT new in '08. I've put 8,000 miles on it. The bike performs fine. So does my refrigerator. And my washing machine. I'm not trying to be sarcastic or cute...and diff'rent strokes and all that, but the K12GT is the blandest bike I've ever owned. It's efficient and comfortable. I bought it for serious touring and, for that, it's fine. But, I can't say the bike is much fun. I owned a K1200R and it was an awesome ride, but lousy for two-up touring, a thousand miles at a time. I also have an '02 K12RS, my second one, and it is an incredible machine with lots of spirit and soul and a whole lot more exciting than the new GT.
Does anyone agree with me? Seems ALL I read is how wonderful the new GT is. And it is, just not as much fun to ride as a whole bunch of other BMWs, IMHO.
