Well guys, if I had my way (which I hope will be sometime very soon), that will be my next bike. I will keep the Brutale for commuting and track days. But I would love that K-bike for some longer sport touring. I am going to try and pick up a used 2005 or 2006 (maybe from MVorBMW). I HATE those 2007 colors.

How do you like your K?

aaah...sorry to be so preumptuous..:eek:
MF stands for exactly what u think: mutherf....n.

I like the K alot...its the perfect compliment to the back breaking, wrist agonizing, cramp inducing ride we enjoy so much from the MV (haha). Seriously, the performance is simply outstanding and its the bike i use if i am doing long haul or multiple overnights as i hate riding with a backpack. It's also virtually maintenance free..amazing.

That's great to hear. I have been doing a lot of research on the bike, going to K-forums, magazine articles, etc. And I am hearing a lot about fueling issues and other software glitches. I may try and test ride one this weekend at Cliffs. I just have to convince my wife I "need" another bike.

i dont agree with the neg stuff re fuel issues, etc. i have had no problems. Yeah, the bike is jumpy, but no more so than my Senna. Its just that this is a new phenomenon to the BMW afficionados, who are accustomed to smooth, controlled power. The torque on this thing is amazing, which i think surprises people and they have a negative reaction. personally, i think its a blast.

if you're down this way at all, the GM of the BMW Manhattan dealer is a very good friend.. I can hook you up with him for whatever you need...

Thanks, I appreciate it!
I was going to call BMW Manhattan to see if they had any granite grey 2006 leftovers and see if they would deal on them. Same with Cliffs. I would prefer to buy at Cliffs because that is where I would have it serviced.
I figure with the wind protection and the heated grips, I could ride into late November early December.

That depends on who you talk to. If you go to k-bikes.com, there are mixed reviews on the Version 7 software. But I guess it doesn't matter. I will go and test ride one and see for myself :)

i wouldnt worry about where u buy it vs where u service it. When it comes to BMW, they dont care about that. Truth is, they dont make any money on the sales anyway, all the profit comes from the service side. So, Cliffs will love you no matter what.

As for how late in the year you ride-- i think you can do better than that. I ride year round if the roads are dry. Get yourself a heated vest and plug it into the accessory outlet. That, plus the heated grips, and i am usually good to go well into the winter

The K is a great bike - the definition of sport touring. But after riding the F4 and Brutale it's hard to get used to the insulated ride. I guess that's the idea for the comfortable longer touring...but I feel disconnected. My issue is that I do so little true touring. Most of my rides are shorter - commuting, etc. But a BMW is essential for year round riding with heated grips and Gerbings. If necessary I'm covered in electric coils from shoulder to toe. I have zero complaints on the fueling issue or performance. It's almost car-like in it's smoothness and stability. As good as it is...just not an MV. And the new colors are awful.

Actually, one complaint...vibration is a factor. But its all relative. After dropping the new exhaust on my 910R I could have kidney failure from riding that beast for more than 45 minutes
