K1600 Sightings Thread

There have been a few sightings posted on the forum lately, but spotting a wild K1600 in its natural habitat is still a rare sight! Post any sightings here, and if you're the rider, give a shout out!

Spotted a blue GTL on the southbound I-15 expressway this afternoon around 1:45PM. Oregon plate. Rode behind you for about 5 miles before I gave you a salute and took my exit.

That was me in Irish Hills. I was just looking for a few curves near home.

This sounds like a Fun thread. Sorta like bird watching. You never know who is watching.

Spotted a silver GTL westbound Richmond-San Rafael bridge (I 580) ON A TRAILER last Thursday/Friday. No plates on it and the pickup truck driver was being too cautious to notice my wave and thumbs up as I drove by in my car (ugh).

Administrator: A subgroup for this would be a thought. Works well on the ST-Owners site. It's interesting to see who gets sighted.

Spotted a blue GTL on Scripps Poway Parkway at about 3:30 yesterday afternoon. There were a few other bikes as well, but couldn't tell if they were together. I was in my cage, unfortunately.

I heard a rumor that there is a blue GTL in my neighborhood that is not mine, still keeping an eye out for it!

I was riding this past Friday in New Jersey somewhere near Tewksbury and saw a Light Grey GT in the opposing lane. It looked like a mirror image. Pretty cool.

This is the first K1600 I've seen anywhere.
