what do you mean gas prices, over here in the uk a gallon of petrol is £5 english pounds, approx $9 us dollars, and as for what i dont like about the k5 1k, two things, the seat space could do with being a bit smaller so you dont slide back too far when really going for it on bumpy roads and foot position to far forward, nothing that rear sets wont cure
I agree with all the other posts about nothing being wrong with the bike. Love mine! Could use a lil more trunk space, and the mirrors dont let you get a good look behind you, but I never did buy a bike for either of those two things! Wish my shoulder didn't hurt from wrecking my 04', but I did get the 05' from it, so, still not complaining. Everything else about it rides, feels, and looks to fit the part of the claimed total dominance of other bikes. Definately love my new girlfriend!
Your last K5 was stolen? My K5 just got stolen on Friday. Does anyone know what insurance pays out for this bike. Im pissed as hell. I hadnt even made one payment yet. I am now looking into gettin a LE from Canada.
