Windscreen in the GT pic is new….
If were going to be sensible we would all dump the motorcycles and buy a Toyota Corolla. Much more safety, weather protection, air conditioning, an automatic transmission along with the potential for better fuel economy.I guess we should all sell our K1600s and buy Goldwings or Moto Guzzis or …...
36K heck it's just getting broke in by then. It will have a good 100,000 miles of life left and then some. These aren't your 70s motorcycle.
Buses? Trains? Uber?If were going to be sensible we would all dump the motorcycles and buy a Toyota Corolla. Much more safety, weather protection, air conditioning, an automatic transmission along with the potential for better fuel economy.
Tires would last 5x longer, protection from the sun and elements, could go on and on!
Has anyone considered this ultimate solution?

Good thing is that they don’t force their taste on you by putting a prohibitive price tag on it. No option 719 nonsense for me and there will always be a black color option and after market companies.I really do want to see the Mother Ship do well, but with no manual trans offered for the new 3 Series, and these confounding new color options (Blue Planet now mixed with Ivory, a lovely option for...Penn State fans; darker, poop brown seating and bike color options; silver on their cruiser-ish model), I can see why recently BMW Group canned their head honcho, er, I mean he's leaving "to pursue other options": https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1123916_bmw-ceo-to-step-down
I love my single-color Blue Planet and light tan seat, BUT of course, folks will still have basic color options, which is a good thing. No one's being critical of that.Good thing is that they don’t force their taste on you by putting a prohibitive price tag on it.

Yep. Had I not found a color I really liked, that's exactly what I was gonna do myself.I had a good local paint shop price out a custom color paint job with me supplying the stripped Tupperware to them. They asked $1250 for it all included. Always an option to get the color that you want.
He didn't say that now did he? The fact remains that BMW has had and continues to have problems with their drivetrains and final drives that once again should have been corrected a long time ago. I find it inexcusable that a drivetrain should fail at any mileage under normal use. The design isn't rocket science, but BMW continues to make their drivetrains difficult to do maintenance on which makes no sense to me at all. Perhaps they look at it as planned obsolescence. The 1200LT was a nightmare, I owned one and the K1600 was supposed to have taken care of these issues. Obviously not! And who can ever forget the clutch slave cylinder issue on the 1200LT. Buy a 1200LT and immediately drill a drain hole in your bellhousing just in case.I guess we should all sell our K1600s and buy Goldwings or Moto Guzzis or …...
Is the audio system standard on US-market bikes? I ask because it's a cost option for European markets so if you don't want it, you don't spec it.My wish would be for a K1600GT-Light.
Get rid of the audio system. For me it's needless weight, cost, and complexity.
