The Dark Side / The big one.
« on: January 21, 2020, 09:20:42 pm »
The big service, 18k is due, or should I say overdue as I slightly overlooked it as the bike has now done 19300 approximately.  :nono:  The bike is scheduled to have a new set of plugs (6), valves doing, engine oil, oil filter, air filter, brake fluid change, final drive oil change, general health check etc and any software updates which may be due. Fearing the worse I got a quote from my local BMW dealer and was pleasantly surprised, 570 all in.


So this got me thinking, how does this compare with the Kawasaki 1400?  Purely for experimental purposes and to quash malicious rumours that if you own a BMW you have to bring more wallet (for example), I got a quote, like for like from an authorised Kawasaki dealer. The quotes were almost identical with the Kawasaki coming in at between 580 to 600.


So in reality the service costs of each bike are extremely comparable which is good to know and reinforces what I have experienced during my ownership of both bikes.  :biker3:

The Dark Side / My new steed.

Ok, so Pete (PRD) will come on here slagging this off saying it's shite, it'll break down, the build quality is crap, wait for all the problems you'll have with it, blah, blah  :censored:  blah.


The fact is, I've had no bike for 18 months and then I bought this in early July from my local BMW dealership and I couldn't be happier with it or indeed the excellent customer service I have received from BMW. It's a used 14 plate GSA with all the toys on it and whilst it's not in the same category as a GTR, it suits my current needs and as I'm due to retire next year, I thought I'd treat myself. I'm looking forward to many trips up to Scotland on it in the very near future.  :clap:

Sad days are here :cry:

The K16 has gone, one week ago today it was sold and so I am currently without two wheels. On the plus side PRD is going to be struggling long term now to continue his jibes towards me :clap:

So no more Wolf tours for a while.

The build quality must be terrific as a mudguard flew off one at the end!  :mfr_lol:
