After two summers without a ride, I was going stir-crazy, so I had to find a ride for this summer. I purchased an '06 K1200S Bumble Bee. I couldn't be happier. It is an amazing ride. The power is exhilerating and it corners on rails. My last ride was an '07 K1200GT, so I consider this bike an upgrade in terms of performance but at the sacrifice of less wind/weather protection. Rainstorms are now more of a challenge and I do miss the cruise control and heated seat.
