2018 gt

I have owned many different brands of motorcycles but never a BMW. When Triumph discontinued my beloved Trophy I bought a 2018 K1600 GT. I bought it in November and have managed 3000 miles between snow storms. It is everything and more than I thought it would be, perhaps Triumph did me a favor.

I don't know what happened to all the warm welcomes that new members usually get.
But as someone who hasn't yet taken delivery, welcome!

Welcome from IL! I am also new to BMWs and waiting patiently for the weather to improve so that I can take a first ride.

Congratulations! I don't think anybody can really appreciate the BMW motorcycle until they ride one. The K1600 platform is just fantastic. Enjoy!

Oh man, you are going to love the K1600. I told myself that the next bike I was going to buy might be my last one so it better be the best I could find. It was providence that a k1600 came up for sale in rural NE Missouri at a price that I could afford. It absolutely puts a big smile on my face every time. If you ever take Hwy 79 north of St. Louis, or head over to Hermann, we should meet up.
