Re: K13GT discontinued ???
I'm a Harley rider to the core, having ridden them over 40 years, and agree a Harley Touring bike is very comfortable because of the riding position and the ability to shift your legs now and then. They are much under appreciated on this forum.
But . . . my K1200GT is the most fun and comfortable bike I've ever owned. Reminds me of the old days on my Husqvarna 400 Cross. It's just plain easy to ride. Light, extremely fast, smooth, great suspension (no ass puckering on the corners when you hit a large chuck hole). Electric seat and grips, adjustable suspension, adjustable wind screen, and, those bags. How easy can you get. Just pop them off and voila, they're suitcases.
I ride with a Connie guy. Out in the desert on a twisty long road, he can't catch me. At about 130 he runs out of throttle and wind protection. The GT is just getting going. Oh yeah, and cruise control. Why call it a touring bike without cruise control???
But, to each his own.
Ride fast. Take chances.
