Just picked up my new bike R1250R with HP options on 13/5/2020, only 523kms on her so far as we head into winter and cold frosty mornings so won't be riding much only in the middle of the day if the temperature goes above 10C. Big change from my 2014 R1200RT and loving it so far as you'd imagine.
In Australia the bikes come fully loaded but I still optioned in a few goodies most have not arrived yet.

Teddy, lovely bike — congrats. I took home a Pollux a few weeks ago, but the demo model I testrode was the HP, and it was just as striking in person as your photo suggests.

Looks awesome in black. Interested to hear about the non esa suspension..How’s it compare to esa for let’s say spirited riding?
I chose the non-Esa suspension because I usually upgrade the suspension on my bikes with Ohlins or similar to suit my weight and riding style, and because I didn’t want the electronic complexity of the Esa.

As it happens the suspension is almost perfect just as it is so I have no plans to upgrade at the moment.

I’m very happy with my choice.

You bet not enjoying these foggy mornings though.
Just gone through 550kms so well on the way to the first service.
How are you Lawrence, what machine have you go thesedays? You never seem to keep your machines long?
I guess variety is the spice of life...

Indeed - variety is the spice of life, it's just that some take it to extreme extremes! BMW R9T with Ohlins at present, still farkling to get it to the 'just right' degree of comfort and 'bonding' with me.

Let us know if you're up this way (SE Q'ld) any time.

Best...

Sure thing, but your state is still in lockdown..
One day we will be free to travel and be rid of this COVID19
R9T sweet love the look of these, they had one in the showroom sold though, next time I went in gone.

Cheers Teddy

Hey! New member - howdy all! In the spirit of 'just for the heck of it', I thought I'd post a pic of my 2020 R1250R with an R65LS fairing that I cut down (to avoid contacting the radiator shrouds and gas-tank at full steering lock...) and fitted to the bike. Probably doesn't actually help with the aerodynamics, but I think it makes the front-end look sleeker. Agree or disagree? Cheers and ride safe!
