i have a *hankerin* for a K1200GT. which i am trying to legitimize, i suppose. or find out fer sure if it's real or not. or if this *hankerin* is just a *pipe dream*.
there is something about the lines of the K12GT that makes me keep coming back to this idea. when i saw the first one ever, i realized this is what a modern motorcycle should be (to me).
i have been thinking i would either go with an '06 or '07.
help me out here, gang. what's the difference(s) betwixt the two?
let me say that i am coming out of the world of vintage bikes. first i had/have old Triumphs. now i have two. and a 1974 Norton 850 Commando. i have moved closer and closer to *modern* technology, two wheel style, and currently own both a 1988 K100 RS (my first Beemer) and a 1993 R100 RS, which i LOVE. i used to have an '88 R100RT, which i sold to get the RS.
do i toss the *Brick* out the window? do i ditch the *Airhead*- my organic, analog friend- the last of the renowned RS Airhead series..... for this.... this..... *Wedge*? if i sold off the K100, the RS and perhaps my Bonneville, the price of an 06 or 07 might be very nearly a wash.
