Sold my GS and picked up a K1200S.

 

It might be a tad quicker than my 2001 GS.

Ooh, shiny and pretty and nice! 

Having seen how quickly you went on the GS I'm only going to say don't get in trouble.

Too much.

I'll plead the 5th.

Excellent bikes.  I had a blue 05 k1200s and loved it.  Now ride a 12 k1300s.

If it's anything like my K-100rs you'll love it - - and regret ever selling it.

That is a sharp looking set of wheels!!

My 650 is fast enough for me, I can't imagine what almost twice the displacement is like!

I broke my bike yesterday. :(

 

There is a massive hesitation/flat spot ~3400-3800 RPM, even with the latest maps/firmware from BMW.  So I bought a Power Commander V for it and was installing yesterday.  The feed nipple for the fuel rail broke.  I noticed a bunch of them for sale on ebay are broken at the same spot.

I did buy a used fuel rail (plus injectors and feed hose) for $38, but that means I'll have to commute in the car for a few days next week.

Sadness.

It's going around.

Although mine is not going to be an easy or cheap fix.

I had a PC V with auto tune on my k1200s. Definitely made a difference.  I also had low restriction filters and a slip on.

It was ~32F in Austin this morning...

Heated gear is amazing.
