After weeks of looking, riding and reading all that I can here I have made the jump. Knowing all that i have learned, mostly from all of you guys in here I have bought my first K16. I have been a R1200Rt faithful up until now. Ten years on my last beemer. Love that bike! Well I had to go and ride the k16 and it blew my socks off! Just a step up for me with the thrill factor. Thank you all for all your postings. It did me well.
