A 1200r that is, not a Monclair coat (wtf?)
I've had a good few bikes and am currently unsettled with my f8gs. Tried all manor of alternatives then a non biker friend said, what was that black one you had that whenever you turned up you always said "I love that bike". The bike she referred to was my r1150r.
They say you should never go back so I tried the gorgeous retro looking r12 classic yesterday and I want one.
Quirky clunky odd bike but still the wonderous flying armchair I remember from years ago
F8 for sale or px. Now actively seeking classic with all the electronics

To bad because i actually ended up with 4 of those, 3 LED lights and even knowing I don't play golf, I have some good Chinese R12 irons. :D

Where are you located? I know the Stealership in Manhattan has one Classic with everything except electronic suspension and alarm.

The stealership where I got mine (NJ) has a red one with everything and also a 2011 with like 2k miles classic one if you like to buy a semi used one and save some money.

Good luck in your search, we'll see you soon.

Hi I'm in England and the good news for farmers is after a warm sunny march, god has fixed the problem with the sprinkler system and its business as usual here. Jeez I want to live in a warm country!
A local dealer has the bike I want on an '11 plate but he wants new money for it. Even trying to (sell)tell me its better than a new one as its been serviced and run in for you! I enthusiastically asked if the previous owner would consider riding it to Barcelona and back for me as I'm a bit busy with work at the moment. Don't you just hate it when you insult an idiot and they just stand there looking confused

And because you will hate dropping your new bike, make sure you get one that has been dropped on both sides, believe me, it's better for you.
Anyways, whenever you are ready to buy new gear, send it to me, I'll stretched it out for a perfect fit and return. All free of charge.
