2014 BMW K 1600 GTL from United States of America
I got what I paid for. Pretty much a flawless bike
I haven't had a single issue; not even the tire inflation sensors, which can always be counted on to trip a light... LOL. Even they work.
I would like to remark about the rotary dial on the left handle bar that is used to select computer, audio, engine, suspension etc.. We can all agree that once selections are made, aside from audio, that the switch can be left alone until needed again. It is large enough that a person would need extraterrestrial thumbs to reach around the dial to operate the constantly used (especially in urban setting) turn signal switch. I find myself changing the rotary dial settings frequently, while activating or cancelling the turn signals. The rotary dial needs to be moved to the right of the signal box, or the signal switch moved to the right bar at risk of bumping the throttle by wire and creating a potentially dangerous incident.
The standard seat is too low and hard. I opted for the "extra tall" seat and I'm only 5ft 10 inches. It works fine, and in my opinion, should be the standard seat. Most of the guys in my EMO group agree.
I've owned the Honda ST1100, GL1800, CBR-XX, Kawasaki ZG1400, BMW R1200RT. This one wins.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
