Picked up a New Bike
« on: March 26, 2019, 03:55:36 pm »
Picked up a demo 2018 K1600GT. The beauty of it was it was a 0 mile demo, and had just been entered as a demo and had not been ridden.

Got a great deal on it, and am completely thrilled with it. The K1600 has gotten some really nice updates recently. Reverse, shift assist pro, dynamic ABS, hill start, Dynamic ESA. Along with some further refinements to the bike, such as improved throttle delivery.

Just an amazing bike, really happy with my decision. It was a long process complete with quite a few test rides, etc.

So you had to go buy it in "Give Me A Ticket" Red, huh?   ;D

Beautiful. Enjoy.

Congratulations!

I test rode one of those and an RT back to back several times.

Went with the RT. Never regretted it. Never left this forum, though.

I like the RT as well, and came pretty close. However, I already have an RS, which I use for solo rides and canyon fun. Love that inline 6, smooth and so much torque.
