So, it didn't take terribly long after I sold the K1600GTL to realize that I missed the benefits that a second bike offers. Twice this year the GS sat parked for weeks in anticipation of a long trip, with a pre-planned appointment for a needed service. Couple that with the fact that I have almost eaten up half of the mileage limit on the GS warranty in one year, and the search was on... You probably already know my must-haves. Cruise Control. Heated Grips. Shaft Drive. Not much to ask, right?
