Re: K1600GTL spotted

That's interesting. I guess they're still testing it, not surprisingly of course. No way would they let even their own people ride a currently very rare bike just for a joyride.

Well, being it a long-distance, all-year-round tourer, I would guess that they need several months of tests on the road, to tune every detail and reach the German Perfection

I wish I was one of those riding it just for a joyride
