I have both a K1300R and an R1200GS Adventure, so I can tell you a about both.

The GS I use for long stuff and touring, mainly it can carry a riduculous amount of the panniers are properly waterproof, the is more than sufficient, and it single track roads in the far better than any sports I should add that any adventure would do the same, probably. the ESA on the bike really works can be adjusted on the move, and you can feel the settings have changed.

It has a 33 litre fuel tank.

A sports bike it is not, and so as you remember that, and ride it it’s a great bike.

with confidence, it can embarrass the odd bike, especially on poorly roads. A true all rounder.

I was for a … bike, and tried the CB1300, which I really and the Triumph Speed Triple dealer), which was awsome in respects but I found it too stiff wise, and it dropped into corners too fast for my liking, it seem twitchy. I was offered a trade in for my Tiger 800XC, I’d bought from so in a huff I went off to my BMW dealer and it in for a K1300R.

No regrets. Its power is stunning, and also very comfortable. also very tractable, well from 2000 rpm or so. a 2102 model, but first last November.

I got it with miles on the clock, and new tyres all It also came with all the and whistles, ABS, traction ESA II, fly secreen, computer, tyre monitor, sports wheels and 195 tyres, and a gear shift

The gear shift thingy was that I felt that I have lived without, is until I opened it up properly and that having ten fingers on to the bars was more important anything, and I was NOT going to let go to work the I should add that I know you can do clutchless upshifts, and used to do it racing Enduro, but I have too mechanical sympathy to do it with a bike.

If you want a … sports the K1300R is the one to go for. The only that I am considering is to change the for a Wunderlich conversion to what is called Superbike bars, like a set of Renthal flat At low speeds I am getting sore but I’ll give it some yet before I decide.

It may just getting used to.

The bike can be with a decent set of expandable BMW which seem to be pretty However, you will have to go for a top box, as BMW don’t recommend one, and it’s not available their catalogue. There are of others who will supply one

I use an Oxford 40 litre tailpack

Of course, there are other … bikes out there, as the Aprillia Tuono, or the KTM 990 Super but I reckon that there that many that be as comfortable. Chain drive has its and disadvantages, it’s a matter of The K1300R is a heavy old thing, and I suggest that other, bikes will handle far but the K1300R is pretty stable on speed sweepers, and the brakes are and very powerful.
