Hello all,

I'm Martin from the UK although I work in the Sultanate of Oman in the oil business (Booo Hiss!).

As a newcomer to this forum I naturally ride a....... erm...... Yamaha FJR 1300 :eek: or in Oman, a Harley Sportster 883 Custom :eek:

So what the heck am I doing here?

well last week I went to my local BMW goody shop to test ride an F650GS on behalf of my wife. Whilst I was there I also had a go on the R1200R which is a **** good looking bike and now I know how well it rides too.

I ride an FJR because I like to tour Europe and about 7 years ago a single test ride was enough to tell me that the FJR was going to replace my Honda VFR800 really soon. Two FJRs down the line from there, the FJR is getting a bit heavy for me to push about on my gravel driveway (I have arthritis too) and so I want something I can both tour and scratch on. Last week I found that bike is the R1200R and I'll be placing my order next time I'm back home. :D

Meanwhile I'm going to trawl this forum for all the info I can gather (like how to attach my Givi monokey box to a BMW rack without fitting a Givi plate).
