About 6 years ago riding into work on I66E in N. VA on my beautiful K1200S. I'm cruising along in the hov with noone else in the lane. The guy beside me is tailgating the guy in front of him. When THAT guy hit his brakes, he just whipped it into the supposedly empty hov. WHAM. Stars, unconscious......and the end of a beautiful bike. He was charged but I was pretty busted up. Just getting back into it now and love the GS!
