Hi all,

Well, after much procrastination and test rides of various bikes, i've recently taken delivery of a new R1200R Classic.
One ride was enough to make my mind up; it's so different from anything else, but huge fun! sporty enough for a 50+ oldie like me, without being draped over the tank of a crotch-rocket.

If it ever stops raining, i'll put some milage on it!:rolleyes:

Congratulations on your purchase! They are truly a tokyo rose in a trailer park. (I think that means they make everything else around just seem inferior)

Anyhow, enjoy your first miles!

Welcome smithy boy. Glad you took the plunge. When the weather fairs up, you're going to love the Classic. Take her for a proper spin.

Are you sure this is not a re-post????? :D:D

Welcome to awesomeness smithy boy.

Beemer should really consider a change to their slogan on this bike from "the ultimate riding machine" to "the ONE ride machine".:p

Ahhh, another convert that had no choice once you rode off on it. The bike does everything well. I commute 94 miles to and from work half the week and a few months ago I did a 2300 mile trip to Canada and back in six days. The bike does both superbly.

Happy riding and most of all, get out there and enjoy her.

Thanks for that!
I'll try my best!!

By the way, any suggestions for a screen? the sports screen looks fab, but doesn't look very efficient.

That sounds like a thorough test for your R1200R Fleuger!
That Canada trip must have been a good shakedown for the bike. I trust you had no issues with her?

Perhaps you should approach BMW Hoshilko? I see a royalty payment in the pipeline!!

I seriously don't understand why BMW Don't advertise the bike more. It's a beacon of individality in a sea of similar bikes. . .
