thanks, yes itīs true, i know. But I donīt espect decision which bike chose from somebody, exept me. I only search the most informations what I can to my own decision. I sold my bike, have money (meanwhile) , spring is comming  :001: and I want to finished it.
How I wrote, I have not any posibility this time try bikes before buy and try from owners. I search on website BMW dealers but nothing, both of bike is "old" and dealers have only new.  I think, that it is not fair play, find some seller (personal) only for try, when I do not want buy his bike. And bike, which I found, is over 200km from my house on all  over state and often on another state (complicated with travel across boarder, test on covid etc.)
I want plan trip and join at least two seller with both bike to try both.

I used website https://cycle-ergo.com/, gave my tall, copy the pictures, one picture got transparet and cover over first.

Thanks for slow writing, I need it.  :062:

Here is a video from a K1300 owner comparing it to an S1000r he test rides


Part 2. At 5:20 into the video he gives his thoughts

Thx you, I saw it  :001: But I did not find how is biker tall. He said what I waited and good point for K1300R, front absorber is thing, what I have fear, if itīs good point for me too.
My big problem is ergonomics. btw. somebody on chat asked to same, but no answer.

Yes, I know, I must try It  :0461: But I search any long time experience of tall riders.

Mate at work has a K1300S, had a low speed collision a few years ago running into a car that went onto a roundabout then braked to a standstill.

That unusual front suspension cost an absolute fortune to replace, it collapsed entirely in barely double figures mph.

I will abuse your kindness. Can you write me know common issues of this bike (S1000R of course). There is problem on reviews, that testers test new bike and owners describe bikes after first keen moments. I tried to search on czech websitest and forums, but on first it is not common bike and second more of ownes has new bike and the issues solved on warranty.

I’m 6’5 and have and both.

There’s not much in it really - both are ok for taller riders. The s1000r is more upright and lighter. The k1300s is comfortable over distance, is a longer bike, noticeably heavier, better wind protection (obviously) and I found it a much more vibey engine than on the smooth s1000r.
