Thanks. What is interesting is following the link to the press release covering facelifts for the other models is there is no mention of the K13 series bikes....K14S..K16S? let's hope this is the year.

Oh, man. I swore I wouldn't buy another BMW after the way I was treated over "the squeak." Not to mention the water pump and switch problems. But the thought of my GTL in beige metallic kinda gives me the horn...

My K1300GT was Mag Beige Metallic..I luv that color. I wonder what the wife would say if I wanted to trade my 2013GTL for a 2014 ? She'll most likely cut my nuts off.

The hit you would take on the switch would probably cover painting the bike any color you wanted.

Evidently, "sporty" and "dynamic" are the new buzz words for 2014. I was hoping for "smoother and quieter driveline" myself.
