I previously owned a K100rt 1985 and just sold it thinking it was too buzzy to drive. I am now looking for another BMW but can't decide if I should get another K bike or go for an R bike. I now own a Goldwing so cruising is taken care of but a wing is a little heavy for around town. I want the BMW to be lighter, be able to go two up occasionally and be dependable. The newer K bikes can't be as buzzy as mine was. From what i read the R bikes are more traditional and popular for some reason. The nearest dealer to my house is over 100 miles away. The next BMW is 50 miles beyond that and both are owned by the same guy. I get the feeling all they want to do is sell you something, anything and right now. Anybody owned a K bike and an r bike that could tell me the advantages of each. Which bike would be best suited for my kind of riding? I asked the BMW dealer furthest away from me and spoke to the sales manager. Everytime I asked a question he turned it back on me saying it depends on a lot of things and never gave a definite answer to anything. He wants me to walk in with my pockets full of money and pick the blue one and get the hell out. I think BMW makes the finest bike made and I loved my K other than it was making my hands go numb. I drove a r bike and loved its performance and it was older than the k bike I had. I could go to the nearest dealer and try a few different bikes but they are far away and would pressure me to buy that day. I would like to go down with at least some idea of which ones would do the best job for me. Anybody have any suggestons?
