Hi just recently purchased a nice K1 so thought it would be. A useful place to start. I also have an r1200gs adventure and live in Aberdeenshire scotland.

Cheers Ian

Welcome Ian! I dare say you have just triggered an envy attack in a fair number of the inmates here. Please do post some pictures of your new K1.

Welcome - we like K1 pics (not too subtle hint!!) - forum sticky on how to post.


Nice roads up in Aberdeenshire for either machine.

Well wear to you as they say hereabouts.

If you're heading for the Simmer Dim along the way then I'm gonna keep your amplifiers Evil or Very Mad

I am having trouble uploading pictures. Tried to follow the sticky on it the icons and format don't appear to be the same.

Been very busy since I got the bike so yesterday was the first time I have taken it out for a decent run, did about 200 mile and everything works perfectly so very happy with it.

Cheers Ian
