There is something to be said for that bodywork. I have a 2004 K1200GT....very similar engine/running gear. Once I was southbound on I-25 with a terrible crosswind. Had to lean it quite a bit to maintain a straight line....and was passed by a guy on an LT who was sitting upright and seemed as if there was no wind at all. Very impressive at the time. Oh, K bikes are all pigs when you have to push them around the garage, OY!
