Son Buys Dad a New K1600GTL

Saw this today in BMW Motorrad's March newsletter. Wow.

Then I sent it to my kids (both adults) as a not-so-subtle hint.

PS: I searched around for this and didn't see it previously posted. If it's out there, well, here it is again.

The kid that did it is a member on the 1600 forum...in fact he had been on it for some time researching which bike to get, options, etc. So it all played out like a reality show. Everyone was blown away when he posted the end result.

It's a great story. I'm glad BMW picked it up and gave it a wider audience. It has almost 25,000 views on YouTube!

Thanks for posting here!
