Re: Bar vibration.

There are no manuals available for the K12/13 only the BMW RepROM

Re: Enjoyable couple of hours....

As I worked my way through pointing out various important parts of the scooter, we got to the battery.

Re: New owner of K1600 major service advice

Any BMW dealer should be able to give you the history of your bike if it went through any dealership. There will be service history and any recalls or updates.

Re: Oh dear

It's not pronounced the way it looks, it's pronounced "coons" which by todays standards is very politically incorrect. There was many years ago a pianist called Charlie Cuntz, referenced here in the last paragraph.
