Mein Auto: 11 335d,08 K12GT,10 S1000
I just cant find any love for the K16GT, too big, too heavy. its a pity as I love my 08 K12GT but thats as big of a bike as I am willing to buy. BMW needs a replacement for the K13S or it will lose some market share. I owned an 05 K12S and sold it for the GT due to a lack of alt power on the K12S (the 13 isnt any higher). now a stripped down K16S with a decent alt. would interest me. so would a S1000RS sport tourer, or a 3 cly K1200RS based off the K16, but I am not interested in what size wise is a replacement for the K1200LT no matter how well it rides. JMHO
