Re: New Guy Here
Given that you now have the exact same year and model bike as I do (and, apparently, even the same color), Frank, I congratulate you!
I too had the large trunk but soon sold it because it seemed to influence the bike's one-up handling in certain wind conditions, acting as a kind of rudder that I could feel in the handlebars. The friend who bought the trunk and uses it on his K1200GT, however, does not complain of this effect and I have yet to see mention of it by any other owners of the K1200 or K1300GTs. Either it was "just my imagination" or I'm just too sensitive to that sort of thing. In any case, I hope you'll let us know what your experience is in this respect.
