2019 R1250R HP Black, 2019 R1250GS HP Rally X
The screen looks much better than I imagined. I might try that myself. Well done!
Beautiful bike, in one of my favorite colors for this model.Next month makes one year for me, bought it with 2500 miles, bit over 12,000 miles now. SW MOTECH luggage, GS 1250 skid plate and bark busters. Winter is on the way out and I can ride it to work and back now. It takes the place of a 2007 Bandit 1250 with 95,000 trouble free miles that I am keeping, 2 bikes are better than 1.

Just outside Moab, the road along the Colorado River on my way to Crested Butte, CO last year. It does see dirt roads, Kebler Pass in Colorado last year, the road into Fern Canyon in Humboldt but it's more for "just in case" and I like the way it looks and I was not a fan of the lower spoiler parts, they had to be removed for the skid plate anyway.Looks more like other Utah area to me . But please post location Rob. And hey, may I ask you why you think a skid plate is needed without ever off-roading? I've seen a plate in front of the lower part of the engine cover, which protects against debris thrown by the front tire, but unless you off-road your bike (doesn't look like you do), curious why you chose that accessory . Thank you.
The Michelin PR4's and 5's have a somewhat aggressive tread, ran a few sets on the Bandit 1250, awesome in the rain, but the front always wears weird, I think because of all the siping on it.Oh, so you 'GS your R' (ha ha); never mind my comment, then. Makes sense to have it. Hey, if you want a great sport-touring tire that also is more than 5% off-road, read great reviews of the new Dunlop Mutant tires; you might want to consider those as well. Not a fan of Dunlop here, but in your situation, I'd consider that set. They look cool too. Take care.
