This reminds me: During the BMW MOA (which I didn't attend), while riding from the Dragon to Kentucky, we took a spin on "Devil's Triangle", counter clockwise on my Silver GTL. About half way thru I came across a fella on a K1600 right where the road takes a sharp Left, but a gravel road or driveway appeared to go straight. Dude signaled he was okay and directed me to stay on the road, and I wondered which one of ya'll that was? My buddy was following me on a blue and white Katana, if that rings any bells.

I saw numerous K1600's at the Tail Of The Dragon this past weekend. Mine was there naked, no top or side bags.

I stopped in Exeter, Ontario to fill up with gas and lo and behold another K1600 was there.

We chatted for a few minutes. He bought his 2012 last summer.

K1600's are a rare sight around here.

Spotted my second K bike ever - (1st one was earlier this year on the expressway I-94 traveling Westbound approximately 30 minutes East of Detroit)

St. Clair Shores Michigan on Jefferson Avenue pulling into his driveway.
It appeared to be a Black Storm Metallic GTL.
I intend to introduce myself, since this fellow is on my daily commute.

Saw an 18 White GTL at the store in my little town of Brinnon last evening. Plate from the state of Morelos, Mexico.

He was a long way from home:

Doing my weekly north run on Utah I-15 today I spotted three bikes about 1/2 mile in front of me. I'm running 105 or so and can't catch them so I know they're not Harleys. 45 minutes later semis are in both lanes so I was able to roll up on them. Two GTLs and a GT. Hah. Looking good.

I saw 2 black K1600s heading south out of Quilcene, WA on US 101 around 1pm yesterday.

They saw an orange GT headed north - me!:grin:

Friday I saw a "brownish" (unless it was dirty-black) K1600 GTL traveling north on 41 a little south of Keweenaw in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I was following 3 squids on harleys and he probably thought I was part of their "gang" - I pulled up next to him and we exchanged smiles.

My wife swears she saw a K16GT like mine in the wild, but with Gray paint.
Does anyone know if they've ever offered that color in any of the K bikes that might be a lookalike?

Since I bought mine this past winter, I haven't seen (or noticed) another GT except at the dealer. :-/

(Surprising since I live in the most densely populated state, maybe I need new glasses)

Are you allowed to "sight" your own motobike?
LOL, almost posted one myself. Was driving alongside of a liquid tanker that was shined up like a mirror. I have never seen one so reflective, it was almost disturbing to see your reflection distort while passing. As I went by I thought 'thats a good looking K1600' and thought about taking a picture for this thread :)
