Here is my '11 R1200R, pictured next to the Snow River in Southern New South Wales in Oz. I just love riding this bike, it fits me like a glove, comfortable, good performance and still looks stylish. I have done almost 120,000 kms (75,00 miles) and it only ever needed maintenance, tyres and fuel - how good a bike is that. I have other bikes, one goes faster and sounds great (Yamaha MT09), my K75C is a time-capsule of the 80's and my 1975 Triumph Triple has character and requires constant spannering. Enough chat, time to get the 1200 out for another run in the countryside, cheers.
