Weight distribution on the 1300 was a massive problem but was never an issue with the 1100. But then on the 1300 you also sat further back in the saddle because there was less leg room than on the 1100.
@Curtis I was referring to the older R80RT’s and the K1000/K1100’s not the more recent boxers.
I was very fortunate in that I had one of the first Pan 1100’s in the British Police service and did much of the development work. It was a revelation after the bendy K1000’s and 1100’s althought the Boxers still remained better town bikes.
Being close to Bracknell we used to get asked to test some of the experimental stuff coming out of Munich and my Sgt had the first 16 valve K. Now if you ever wanted to see a bike weave as if it was going to break in half, that was the bike.
