    Hi all. Greetings from the Emerald Isle. I'm picking up my first K1600 GTLE this weekend and looking forward to it. Bike has just 4500 miles on it which to me is basically new. Is there anything I should check before I hand over my hard earned cash. I will be test riding it prior to handing over any cash but is there anything I should check while out and about and away from the owner. Cheers.

      Congratulations on the bike and welcome to the forum.
      Just make sure the prescribed maintenance has been done by a dealer.

        Welcome.  with 4500 miles on her...I doubt there is anything.  May I suggest just pull the Condensate drain line plug out and make sure there is no oil in it.  Located behind the frame by the left ankle.  Black rubber hose with a red or black plug cap.  Maybe have them put on a new rear tire for free as well as it is 50%-70% gone at 4500 miles
