i am thinking of getting a new R1200R and was wondering what everyone is using for a tank bag as well as what side cases you have. a new R1200R with the BMW touring package includes the BMW side cases but i don't know much about them. whats there capacity, are they durable or are they prone to problems. i would set the bike up as follows:
parabellum scout fairing
some type of bar riders/bar backs as i prefer a more upright riding position
either the BMW side cases of some other type based on recommendations here
Givi or perhaps a Coocase top box
some type of tank bag would be needed
i am coming from a F650GS, which i would keep, but want something a little better/smoother for extended trips on the highway. i am also hoping with the scout fairing it will offer better wind protection they i currently get on my little GS.
i would be purchasing a new 2010 R1200R with the factory low suspension/low seat option. i am also considering a finding a used R850R/R1100R and then lowering it myself. any advice/opinions of going this route as opposed to a new, factory lowered bike.
