Rant or whine-call it either one?
I?ve been riding this new to me K1300GT for 6 months...with just under 12k miles on it, it is hardly broken in?
Did 60 miles each way to visit a friend today-freeway and surface streets?
Could not get the suspension set to match the highway conditions?seemed like invisible bumps jammed me-(setting comfort 1 helmet)--like a gut punching spine pump. Just can not see how anything other then a complete revalve on the suspension could fix the dampening or rebound.
The bike cuts a turn when I lean into it?but most of the time?60-70mph feels fast?and I don?t want to hit something the bike can?t absorb..I?m over 60 after all.
New Michelin P2?s front and rear? 36/38 psi
My Heli bar order came today?but I?m too discouraged to open the box and do the installation.?
Did I buy the wrong bike for me?
The seat allows me to settle forward building a heat until I find myself against the tank?.fine until the road deals you something the suspension can?t handle?
So now you have heat plus a crunch..not pleasant?.am I the only one?
And then there is the slow speed heavy maneuvering you have to deal with while parking or stop and go?.?certainly not and F800GS that I?m used too?or my FZ1.
I thought this was to be my Interstate cruiser?
