Here it tis.



OK, will put you all out of your misery, besides I am so excited I got to tell people.

I have to say I don't think the pics do it justice, it is a stunning bike in the flesh. 

These are not my pics but ones taken from the advertisement  I will post some of my own up when I get the bike in the garage, picking it up tomorrow.

This bike is going to be soooooooooooooooooooo much fun!  Welcome to the world of hyper sports touring....

  2. Definitely a beautiful bike, you are now all German :-)
    How does it sound compared to the Triumph Triple? I still think the triple has the best sound of any bike. Good luck and watch for the cops, not that you speed ;-)

    1. The sprint had a standard exhaust, compared to this bike it sounded quiet. This thing sounds like it is on on steroids!

    1. I think it will be mate....not as much top end speed as yours though, but a weapon none the least.

  6. Rog,
    Nils Poulsen was convinced that you'd bought a Ducati Diavel! Buying a Honda Blackbird with BMW badges on was a far classier choice ;-)

  9. Roger:

    congrats on your new ride. I'm not sure what you're going to do with all that power. I don't think THIS OLD COOT will be able to keep up

  16. Hyper Sports Touring? Isn't that what happens when you put too much sugar into your large coffee?

    Beautiful bike. Are you planning any mods for it?

  17. She's a sexy beast alright, but I blame your new found love of BMWs on Lori since she isn't here to defend herself. Can't wait to see some pics you've taken.

    Cheers!

  18. Wait wait wait. I've been admiring your Sprint ST from afar for a long time. It was my dream bike. Then one showed up at my local dealer and I test rode it. The vibration from the throttle put my hand asleep within a few miles. I was so disappointed! I figured it must've been a fluke. Months have gone by and I've kind of fallen in love with the K1300S. One of *those* just showed up at a local dealer, but I can't buy it because my car just failed! Now I have to envy your K1200S TOO! So not fair. Did you trade the Triumph?

  19. Matt....mate, sorry ahout that! Didnt trade the sprint selling it privatly,put it at auction for $1 reserve, 6 days to go and it is about half way where I expect it to sell..

    The K is a bike above the sprint i have to say, going to add a quick shift as the only mod, it is pretty well spced up off the shelf.
