Home video of K1300GT acceleration from CCR

OK, so I was mosying around the Black Hills last week while attending CCR, and came across these other bikers who were also at CCR. Since I happened to have my camera mounted on my handlebar, I starting shooting HD video as I rode up to them (they had no idea, and were thinking I was some kind of weirdo!).

Well, it was Randy and Michelle on their K1300GT and K1300S, respectively. I made a motion to Randy that he interpreted as "Get that thing moving!" - so he did! Michelle quickly followed.

It's rough footage, but considering the fact that Randy (like me) is not a tiny fellow, the GT's get-up-and-go (from a starting speed that shall not be stated, but was "not slow") is pretty impressive!


Be sure to click the little four-arrow symbol at the bottom right of the frame to make it full-screen!
