Going to look at a K1200GT

Hi, I'm off to look at a K1200GT on Thursday, I bought an LT last year and love it, however, I find it a bit top heavy, so I took the back box off it, I like the idea of the GT because the luggage can be taken off in seconds,

Is there anything I should be looking out for?

I won't be taking it for a test drive so any pointers will be a great help.

Cosmeticaly it looks good in the pictures.

And the 1200 is very good as well, the FI is more dialed in on the 1300..

It,s a 2006 k1200gt with 35k miles, full dealer Service History, full luggage including top box and a navigator 2 system, the panels all have protective film, it looks awesome, as I said I'm off to look at it tomorrow.

Is there any niggles I should be looking out for?

Sounds like the bike a go. One thing I can say the F & R shocks are due for replacement if stock. Factor that into the price. Hope all goes well.
