I hope to have my current bike as my last bike too. I figure I have 30+ years of riding left in me.
to the first, all i can say is amen. it's really a feelin i can't describe, other than you have to try it your self to see.

and for the stop ridding thing, i see you on the first, but as for not getting your legs over the seat, well i know a guy that is paralylize from the hips down. and he rides a nic tryc. bike.

Some very nice bikes Carl. How do you like the GT for comfort and smoothness. I'm considering waiting for the 1600GT. It should be awesome, but I'm a little worried about maintenance costs. Unfortunately the free maintenance doesn't include the motorcycle line.

No maint on the bikes is pay as you go and I am sure the 6cykl 1600 will be higher than the 4cyl 12-1300 series bikes. I like the K1200GT alot for sport touring both solo and 2 up. It is a very squared away mile muncher than is still pretty dang fun when you get there!! Last trip I left Crockett,Tx (100 miles n of Houston) at 4am and by 5pm was in Chatanooga,TN. snagged a room and got up the next mornign and took back roads over to Deals Gap and played for a couple days over in that area (stayed at Fontana Village) and then threw the bags back on and headed back to Tx. about 2500 miles in 6 days and got home wanting to just keep going!!
