Hiya, my wife decided that here in the UK, our 900 Thruxton was no longer suitable for long camping trips now we are in our 60's so l bought a 2009 R1200R with 13000 fully serviced miles. Mainly to visit Glemseck 101 in Germany at beginning of September but it turns out that I'm so impressed l may well keep it.
1200 miles, 59mpg and it did everything l wanted / needed during that week. Excellent brakes, turning circle and suspension, made it really enjoyable to ride through 30' C forest and mountain hairpins with easily enough torque to haul the luggage / wife in comfort.
In conclusion, I'm looking for cylinder head protection, a comfort seat and a baglux tank cover ready for our next trip in November.... anyone ???
all t best from E Sussex
