No whining, Just about the bike

Anyone else want a thread that's not complaining about gearbox recalls/Bluetooth/left pull/dealer whatever, or tires/oil etc
how about a thread that's just about the bike we all spent a lot of of hard earned to enjoy.

How about we start with a picture of or short post on why we ride these bikes

This picture was taken at Burragorang lookout, it's only an hour and a bit from my place, but its a good ride on good roads with very little traffic, great place to stop and have a stretch, and stare out over the valley and relax after a bad week at work, follow this with a ride home on some nice twisty county roads, a great day out on the best bike I've ever owned.

The level of irony in this thread is highly entertaining.

There is NO need to tailgate me when I am doing 50 in a 35 zone... and those flashing lights on top of your car look ridiculous.

The main purpose of Internet forums is to complain about stuff and argue.

The good aspects of the K1600 are that it hauls ass and handles really well. It's a great bike for sport touring.
