    Just bought a 2022 K1600B GA. I'm enjoying this bike. No issues for me. Great bike! Rides great with a lot of power. Just a fun bike overall!

    I agree, such a pleasure to ride. Coming off a Harley, its a drastic difference in comfort and handling.

    Did you sell yours?
    My K16GT does NOT have any type of wobble, wiggle or unstability at all.

    Since the OP never came back, it's safe to assume he got rid of the bike and moved on. In this video link, an experienced rider talks about the issue during his review of the GA. Skip ahead to the 9:34 mark. Sadly, the instability is real, in spite of what the Kool-aid drinkers would have you believe. https://youtu.be/dS6Gun8nhm8 He even goes so far as to say it's the one thing that would keep him from owning one.

    I had my B on the interstate just yesterday and was cursing the bike for all the squirming it was doing in the heavy traffic at interstate speeds. "I really need to get rid of this thing" I said to myself. Then an hour later on a fast, wide-open highway with no traffic, all was forgiven. Sigh.

    I have a cure for the wobble. Buy a GTL/GT.

    Those models are better, to be sure. Which only reinforces my belief that the wobble/weave is aerodynamic. After all, the bikes are identical from the seat forward. I keep thinking one of these days I'll take the side bags off (unbolt, unfortunately) my K1600b and take it for a fast ride on the interstate. I won't be a bit surprised if the straight-line handling is much improved.
