Hi folks, new to the forum and really happy to be a member. A few weeks ago I got a deal of a lifetime on a leftover 2016 K1600 GT. The seller only put 173 miles on the bike and decided he didn't have enough time to ride. He sold the bike to me for $16,000 and I couldn't be happier since I was planning to buy a 2019 for nearly twice as much! My previous bike is a 2009 Yamaha FJR 1300 and it has been a terrific bike from day one. Nevertheless, I've wanted a Beemer for more years than I can remember and here I am. Looking to learn a lot a lot from you all and hopefully I will be able to make a few positive contributions as well. Best to all and rubber side down.

Greetings. I too am a pretty new member to the forum, so new, they won’t let me post!
Enjoy the new ride. I also have a new to me GT1600. Love everything about it except the weight in parking lots. I learned the hard way it’s hard to pick up!
So where are you enjoying your new bike?

Hello Bust-A-Cap from Big D. Sounds like you got a great deal on your GT. Welcome to the forum.

Pgriesshaber, hang in there. Each of the first three posts have to be approved before being able to advance to the next one. After this, you should be good to go. BTW, it will take a lot longer if you wait several months to post anything.

Supposedly, Ben Franklin said beer is proof God wants us to be happy. So, does my love of beer mean I'm closer to Him?

Thank you for that. Kind of discouraging to try and post and get denied. Oh well. Rules are rules.
But welcome to all the new members. Someday we can actually post to each other!

Wel-=6=-omes!!

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.
