Lapsed for quite a few years without a BMW; didn't quit riding though. Older now but still enjoy riding a big bunch. My wife and I like touring the country with the bike in a truck behind the motorhome for the past few years. Spend most of the time traveling on the bike after we stop. Got tired of the heavy touring bikes and found the K1300GT to be about 300 lbs. lighter. It is factory exec. demo I found in Orlando. Guy skinned up the paint parking in a garage so the Mercedes/BMW car dealership there is doing some repainting. Will pick it up later this week.
