Hoping to see K16s on November 29

As I understand it, the new bikes will be on display in Britain at the Carole Nash Bike Show coming up in Birmingham very soon. I am going to be there on Monday November 29, and will try to take some decent pictures.

Price in Britain for the GTL has been runoured to be close to £20,000 sterling and the GT, £17,000. Ouch. Means I'm not likely to be buying one new yet. Lots of life left in the K1200LT, though.

Re: Hoping to see K16s on November 29

I'm afraid that I want one too. What I'm most interested in is how they feel, compared to the LT, when sat upon.
At one time, based on what I'd read, I thought the RT was just the bike for me. Then I rode one. NOT. Just wasn't for me.
So, if you get a chance, sit on one, and tell us what your thoughts are.
Thanks,
Frank

Me too. Plus I want to be on one moving. When I first straddled my LT, I thought what a horse. I'm only 5'7, so you get the picture. But once it started moving I was in love. There's been a lot of complaining about this bike not being an LT for various reasons, but I venture to say that any current BMW rider who gets to ride one will want one.
