    Welcome to the forum

    Yeah, a lot of us hoping they get that figured out on the other site.

    Ditto on riccas comments on location...but that K13R is sharp. Rare bird in US, the 05-07ish era K12R's are what we are used to seeing and still very few.

    Oh, and those other three bikes are pretty sweet too

    Thanks for the welcome...

    Yeah the k1300r never went to the US as you know....it is pretty rare here in Canada too...especially my model the Carbon Fibre special edition...I went into my local dealer over 5 years ago to purchase the k1300s model...they started looking for one for me....then the salesman said...."have you ever seen the R model..."showed me a pic of the bike and I said...."Get me that bike"!! Lol...I have put 81,000kms on it.....love this bike and will never sell it.

    Cheers

    I have a funny story about it....A few years ago I was waiting for the coho ferry to arrive in Victoria for me to take it to Port Angeles Wa. to start a trip to Las Vegas....there were some American Harley riders admiring my bike...never seen one before...of course I was telling them how rare it was and that there were only something like 6 of them in North America (the carbon fibre se...that is)....when the ferry started to unload....you guessed it...a k1300r carbon fibre se, identical to mine rode off the ferry....lol....the Harley guys say "hey isn't that the same bike as yours"??...lol...I found out later it was a guy from Vancouver that owned it...he sold it and I'm not sure where it is now.... lol
