    Newbie Hello
    « on: 2018-01-02 03:02:48 »

     :) Hello to all you K series owners Just a big Hello and Happy New Year to you all, I'm looking to the K16 GT sport for my next bike as my better half has taken a like to coming along at last ! after a couple of run ins with cancer I'm now a neck breather ( Laryngectomy) since 2013, I have always had motorbikes and soon as I could after my treatment back in 2013 I bought a lovely new triumph scrambler 2014 plate, but after much lovely times taken out on the triumph and the wife coming along I thought of the big K16 as a good option for us to enjoy together. we would very much like to know all the pros and cons to owning this beauty of a machine. Thankyou be good best regards Wombal
    ps not real name once you get to know me a bit better I will explain  ;D  all the very best.

      Welcome to the forum and best of luck with your quest for a GT Sport.
      I have a 'regular' GT with topcase. My previous bike was a Honda Pan European ST1100 ABS/TCS. A great bike but my better half likes the GT even better (and so do I).
      She especially likes the top case. It prevented her from falling off a couple of times when I accelerated faster than she expected  ;D .

          Hello and welcome, I have a GTL Exclusive because I ride two up most of the time. The better half loves the top case and the arm rests. On my second K16 and even with its little niggles we both love them. Enjoy your bike when you get it, stay safe.

            yes enjoy the bike I am on my 5th k1600gt and love them
            NOTE look up in the hand book how to check the oil level as its easy to over fill the bike in a panic
             ;)

                I'm new here too, though not to the K1600.  Just bought my 4th GTL since they came out.  Fantastic bike with many improvements since the first version.
