Hello All, my name is Russ. I own a 2007 R1200R and just found this forum. I'm a member of other BMW forums and had to join this one. I've owned many BMW's over the years, airhead and oilheads, and have over 300,000 BMW miles on the saddle, and this bike is by far the best bike I've ever owned. I bought it in '08 with 8,000 miles on it. I look forward to meeting fellow R1200R riders and sharing info.
