Hey All,
I'm new to BMW ownership and this forum. After riding Hondas for twenty years, a Super Black Bird for the last fifteen, I decided to get a GTL. I was waiting for Honda to replace the discontinued Black Bird but it never happened. I must say that I am warming up to the K. I wanted a sport bike with comfort and touring capability and no matter what the magazines say my CBR1100XX was not all day comfortable.

I have to admit that no one in my circle rides a BMW. Jaws drop when my extended riding family sees it for the first time. Where I'm from, everyone has either a Hyabusa (or GSXR, R1 etc.) or a HD Road/ Street Glide, period. I often get asked "why" in a tone as though something went wrong in my thinking. I assure you that my thinking is the same as always; I want top of the line performance in power, braking, cornering and now comfort. Ladies and gentlemen of the St. Louis region allow me to introduce to you, the BMW motorcyle!!!

Welcome & congrats on the new bike.
Also take a look over on the K1600Forum
Same folks own both this & that site plus there is a lot more info on the K16 over there.
