HI From Indy
« on: August 12, 2017, 06:10:20 PM »
Just joined - I have a '16 s1000 xr that I traded my K1600 GTL for; I wanted a lighter bike;
It was a great choice - as absolutely love the bike.  Bill :305:

Hello Bill and welcome.  I got my 16 last month.  You'll love it more every day.  :001:

Welcome to the forum Willie!  The XR may not be as comfortable as your GTL but the performance is every bit as good and it is much easier to back out of a parking spot.

Congratulations! I love/ appreciate my XR/ hope you have the same experience. BTW, I know the K1600GTL is heavy, however many say that it's so slouch in the handling department (kind of a sleeper, also its suppose to be the ultimate in comfort). Anyway, if you dont mind my asking, besides the weight advantage of XR what else do you like about XR over the K1600GTL?
