Welcome Mr Yeti, although it looks like a typo has robbed you of 85 cc (it's clearly an R1200R, engine capacity 1170 cc). 😉

Twins! And almost even to the mileage.
The guy who had it before me took very good care of it. Still learning about the quirks of the bike. Took it for a ride today and had to ride slow due to downed trees and debris. When I got home it was pinging a little bit, but the oil temp looked good. I have owned lots of air and air/oil cooled bikes, so I am not worried about the pinging.

Welcome TFY, to one of the finest motorbikes and forums on the innerwebz - yes biased but not hyperbole.

Having owned one of each, I recommend you give the R12R and this forum a little time before you move forward on a R9T - both great bikes, but the R12R is an excellent Swiss Army Knife jack of all trades, while the RNineTs for all their goodness each fit more of a specialized demographic.

Questions? Search the forum and ask away.

Cheers, Dave

Thanks for the advice. Most of my rides are less than 100 miles on rural roads with occasional trip on the interstate to New Orleans. I really like the versatile nature of the R1200R.
