Greetings, all - new member here. Have owned more BMs than I can probably remember (everything from R80s through Ks to oilheads, most recently GSs) and now landed with a 1200R. 2009 model, originally the local dealer's demo bike so fully loaded with every conceivable option, most of which I wouldn't have specced if I'd been buying new, but what can you do?
I couldn't live with any of the factory colours (talk about uninspiring....apologies to those who like them - it's just my opinion) so I had the dealer get the bike sprayed lava orange which is a standard colour option on the K1300R and S and the F800GS. Colours are a matter of taste, but I love it.
Already fitted an SW Motech Alurack with Givi adapter, 1200GS handguards (didn't need the home-made bracket that most people seem to use) and a touring screen. Waiting for a comfort seat to arrive to keep the wife happy on the back. Future plans include an exhaust I can actually hear
Sorry, no arty settings, but here it is:
The paint looked better in the sun, but this is England.......
