Howdy! I'm from Utah and would like to learn more about the R1200R. I have 3 bikes: a '10 Bonneville T100, an '03 Yamaha FJR1300, and an '01 Honda Valkyrie Interstate. Great bikes, but I'm likely in the market to sell the latter two, which I might replace with a 1200R.

Been riding since 14, with dirt bikes and motocross. It was good training. Took a hiatus (went straight) when I got married and a family arrived. Got back into street bikes 15 years ago and am now addicted. (They say there's a fine line between a hobby and mental illness. I think I'm clearly straddling it.)

The Bonneville has given me a better appreciation for the simplicty of motorcycling. I suspect many are drawn to the R because of that. It appears to be a straightfoward streetbike; light, nimble and uncluttered. I'm looking forward to learning about your experience and perspective.

Like the Bonnie,

One day, I'll move to a home with garage or a building with more then one parking space and get one of those or an Ural solo.

All I have to say it's go out and buy an R1200R, the best bike I have ever ridden.
