Bought an R1250R HP after much deliberation. I also have a KTM 990 SMT which is a similar style of bike so was trying to find something a bit different.Test rode Ducatis, retro Kawasaki, etc, etc. Didn’t like any of them enough to buy one, but then ........ had a test ride on a 1250.
The KTM is a straight out hooning machine whereas the BMW is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. More refined, smoother, plus all the electronics. Good with a pillion or solo. Love it.

Have had to put a battery tender on the KTM through lack of use. Still can’t part with it though.

Makes sense, Carlos. Welcome aboard.

I'm an avid follower of other bike models and I'm sure they'd be fun to ride, but my LC Roadster is the bike I'm very happy to live with every day, everywhere, and don't feel I've compromised in any way.

Congratulations and obviously you have good choice in bikes as I am also a big fan of the 990 SMT
