Talking Update on my '07 K1200GT

Finally got her back - well, a couple of weeks ago but, I've been busy.

BMW finally had to replace the fuel control computer, on my bike. All parts & labor on them.
I got her back on Thursday nite and left for LA the next morning. I put approx. 800 miles on her in three days, in 60 degree weather (near the coast) & 105 degree weather (in the inland valleys). Not a burp out of her even with a hard ride out to the Rock Store, on Mulholland Drive, Decker Canyon, & down to PCH.
I have noticed that she's a bit surgey on the throttle sometimes but, I'll put that down to the new pilot, for now.
My wife & I did the Moto GP, at Laguna Seca, on Sunday and she (the wife) was quite comfortable on the back.
All and all, I think I've got a great bike here and I absolutely love the cruise control & the rest of the ammenities.

Bruce,

Good to hear you and SO are enjoying the "improved" GT. I may jump back on an '09. Dealer called to tell me they are giving $1000 rebates now. I did the MOTO GP in Barcelona. Great fun.
Yasuni, the Barcelona based exhaust specialists, are HQ'd in Barcelona. We kicked off a test with KTM that weekend.

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.
