positions available (low/high) for either the tall or standard seat, then, the K 16 B can easily fit riders from just over five feet tall to over six feet tall—no doubt the vast majority of riders. I can’t blame BMW too much for a seat causing butt-burn after several


hours on the road. My rear end has never met a stock BMW seat that it likes, and I am constantly on the search for the perfect seat for my backside. By the end of the first day of riding, I was ready to get off the bike, and by the end of the second day, I decided that if I ever buy a Bagger (and I would dearly love to) my first and possibly only aftermarket purchase for the bike will be a seat that conforms more to what I prefer. I spent those two days on the bike searching desperately for something to


dislike, only to come up short on everything but the seat. Handlebar reach – perfect. Dash – bright, packed with information and viewable in direct sunlight. Throttle – responsive to a T. Brakes – fantastic. Windshield – great, easily adjustable to control noise, buffeting and wind flow. Heat – manageable, even in stop-and-go traffic. Suspension – excellent. I even love the way it looks, possibly because it doesn’t look like anything BMW has ever done before. I do hope BMW decides to offer the Bagger in more colors than black, but if they don’t, I’ll be perfectly happy riding a black one.
