Hello everyone
Just got 2013 R 1200 R. Love it. Used to ride a 1998 R1200 C. Two totally different machines. Very different riding styles. Getting used to this and eager to know more about my new one. This forum has a lot of information and I am looking forward to seeing and reading from fellow riders.
Make life a ride :)

Biarritz Blue or Montego Blue, IIRC. I had one of each colour (albeit not simultaneously at the same time together), and the Telelever is a decided plus, as - indeed - is the BMW komfortsitz.. Enjoy!

G'day Sid. I also came to the R12R by way of an R12C. In my quieter moments, I wonder if it would be possible to put the camhead engine into the C frame and have the best of both worlds.

The R12R, I must say, is much quieter compared to my R12C :)

I had a set of Hookijacs on my R12C. Now they were LOUD!
I do miss my R12C seat though. I could ride for hours with it gently cupping my posterior :)
