I ordered the 2023 K1600 B with 719 option last year at this time. From that dealer, they were not able to get the bike so I got my money back and then I went to Richfield BMW in Mn. They were able to get my bike this Nov. Because it came in at the start of winter, I was only able to look at it and the dealer put it in storage for me until spring. Now I have waited a year for the bike, and now I have to wait 5 more months to finally get to ride it is really really hard!!! I can’t wait!!!

Heck yeah we are in the same boat, Pun intended since I ordered the same thing you have but mine is (supposedly) still on a boat at or coming from Germany. Not expected till late December. So to overcome the wait i have been ordering do-dads and this and that's to work on the bike until i can get it on the road when the weather warms up, Looking forward to that Indian summer in January. Looking good and nice choice.

Welcome from Arizona. Take the owners manual home, if you haven't already, and read it cover to cover. There are a lot of unique features about these bikes that you need to know ie: proper way to check oil level and how the linked brakes work.

Take a few minutes and introduce yourself in another thread.
Take a look at this thread.

Congrats and welcome! Glad you're here. I can only imagine the anticipation of a new ride and being unable to enjoy it. May the winter be short and sweet.

Wow, that's a beautiful motorcycle!
I'm in the same boat as you. I just purchased a new motorcycle too.. Well, I was able to put 1,200 miles on it before the crap weather hit. (Northeast Ohio)
But hay, it gives us time to learn and play with the electronics. Prepare for the 2023 riding season...
23' is going to be epic!

Pretty impressive looking bagger. That would be tough on me, having to wait, once I sat on it. It will be a great spring, for you, in the meantime you can line up your personal touch mods from tank bags, bag liners, risers, bag guards, exhaust, etc, etc.! Cheers!

Guess I got lucky on my 22' K1600B back in May this year. Went to dealer for a part for my Triumph and a K1600 GT and "B" were there. The salesman said a deposit was on the "B" so not available. I went back a week later and the K1600B was still available, I put a deposit on, came back picked up a week later. Wonderful bike, accessorized with a Tanner rack, Illium Works crash rear guard bars, 7Jurock 17" screen and other mods...

@AZJake77. I had that same luck. I knew my dealer was waiting on two '22 B's. And of course they were in short supply. I was selling my XR, so that took a little time. I had a buyer for the XR, but not a final transaction yet. I called back to the dealership. The two B's had come in. One was sold. The other was in prep, not even on the floor yet. I laid down my deposit right there over the phone.

Well congrats on your buy. Are they “storing” it on the showroom? If so I’ll go over and sit on it for ya, keep that seat warm.

Great bike, though - but is it 2022 or 2023 as you got it this nov?
