Traded in my '08 K1200GT after 16k excellent miles for a new '13 R1200R anniversary edition. Wanted something a little more sporting that reminded me of my first Monster, without the associated frustration.

Welcome. Nice looking R. I've always thought the twin boxer engine has a lot more character than the inline 4 K12. A lot less plastic as well. You won't regret it.

Thanks. The Monster was still a great first bike. I learned a lot on it, but I know that getting another would probably be a mistake.

Taking the R out for a few hundred miles tomorrow. At least that's the plan now. Things may change after a hundred miles or so of no windscreen. (It's on order.)

Couple of hundred miles should be a walk around the block for the R. It would be monstrous on a Monster. . . :)
