After wanting a BMW bike for months, and drooling over various models etc, I finally decided on my slightly broke in (151k miles) '07 R1200R. This bike has truly redefined and revolutionized my beliefs on motorcycling. I am not a veteran rider, nor have I been on any long trips, but this bike has really taught me to be a better rider in the short two weeks we've been on the road together!
I love it! Absolutely gives me more confidence and pleasure than any other ride I have been on. So much so, that I have planned out my first road trip, a 5k miler that I can not wait to get going on! Again, this is just the opinion of a newbie to bikes and BMW Motorrad, but I'm not planning on riding anything else!
