I've been thinking FJR lately but got myself onto a K1600 (both GT and GTL) this weekend and... what a magic ride.
I'll hang around for a while yet.

Good Luck with your sale Patrick, unfortunately I may have to follow a similar line in the not too distant future. Love this bike also have a trike but rego and insurances are forcing the purse strings. May part with both yet and go solely with a vintage registration bike.
Cheers

Wish you were in the US.  I have a buddy looking to sell his 1600 GTL in favor of an XR....

Good luck to you and enjoy the the "sofa on wheels" (That's what some in our riding group call it....it's a great bike, just completely different purpose).  The extra 200lbs takes some of the fun out of riding here on the curvy roads of North Georgia.

The deal is done

Done. XR sold. K16 purchased.

Huge torque, huge seats and surprisingly nimble for a land barge. The centre of gravity is very low due to the motor mounting angle and it flicks around very easily. It should lose around 40 kilos with the luggage off so that will improve things. I have to get used to keeping the revs down though... it cruises nicely under 2k but, as a force of habit, I keep holding the revs around 4k. Active headlight is awesome. Now i just need to remember what all the buttons do...

Take one for a spirited ride Bree... A good rider will keep litre bikes honest through the twisties on a K16
