I'm starting to consider a used 2009 K1300GT but I've got a couple of questions.
I'm intrigued by many current BMW motorcycles, I thought that I pretty much had it narrowed down to the R1200RT but while browsing at a large multi-brand dealership yesterday, I noticed that they have a used 2009 K1300GT in dark blue.
While maybe not quite as comfortable as the R1200RT, it still feels pretty darned comfortable and I would imagine that it would be noticeably more peppy then the R1200RT.
This particular bike has 68,237 klms on the clock( 42,400 miles). Those are mostly highway miles I would guess.
Is that a significant amount of mileage on this type of motorcycle?
Is it a fairly dependable bike? Any common, noteworthy problems?
Is it reasonably comfortable for a pillion?
I was impressed with the over all looks of the bike, all of the standard features and the way that it feels when sitting on it. I've never had the chance to ride one but I've read many positive reviews on the k1300GT engine.
BTW, this dealer is "asking" $17,000 (Canadian), which might be around $6,000 less then the list price when it was new.
I'm just looking for any input from you K1300GT owners.
