Oops, a couple parts came loose?

I kind of figured there would be mods in its' future.

Can hardly wait to see what you create with the impressive canvas.

Well this is going to be fun!!!

Looking forward to see what Steve does with the BMW.  I am sure it will make this rocket even more fun.

Yes the speed and acceleration can be down right alarming!

But the good news is there is "rain mode" that will help keep your under wear clean if you find your right wrist limiter is broken.

Hang on!

For those wanting more out of there K1600B, all it takes is a reflash. Potential top speed 170+ MPH ( off-road only of course).

Amazing how easy it is to get this kind of performance.

Did the “reflash” to mine and results are insane. Made a great bike truly “next level”. Different bike for sure than the Harley both good and bad but as far as performance goes I have never rode anything like it. To be fair though many things on the bike also don’t compare to the Harley either, just different.
As I explained to my wife, they are opposite book ends and you just need both to be complete. Maybe some of you will have better luck than me with that explanation..

awesome thread.  The BMW is really growing on me.....alot.  Can't wait to see what Steve came up with.  If I didn't just get my 19 CVO RG I would seriously be thinking about this one.

I have been seriously looking at the k1600B and the Grand America. My breakout is great for shorter trips but the freeways around here are in such crappy shape that its limited suspension travel just does not handle it anymore. If I had the room for another scoot, the 1600B would be at the top of my list.

I took a K1600B for a test ride a couple weeks ago.  Wow.  Torque out the wazoo.  Rode a curvy, hilly route.  Amazed how it would pull in 6th gear, no constant up/down shifting like with a v-twin.  Also, being able to speed shift w/o clutch was a bonus.  Lots of other technology too.  This bike's a beast.

JCZ and I have been on a ride since last Monday all over NoCal (I’m sure he will post up ride report, he has been taking amazing pics!) and I am riding the BMW. Bike has been a dream on these 13 hour in the saddle days. Many of you know the “pace” we ride at and it’s been so unbelievably effortless so the bike. Thank God I got the 101 mph limiter removed.
