With all the post about problems with the K1600s I just wanted to say that I have over 12,000 miles on mine and with the exception of a waterpump I've had no issues at all. Everything on the bike works great. In my opinion it is the best bike money can buy. Its a pure joy every time I get to ride it. I've owned other brands of motorcycles {Harleys,Hondas} and have ridden others and nothing comes close to the K1600 BMW. Tom
