I've actually been a member for two months or so, but haven't posted or really ready anything. I've got an old, restored and modified R75/6 set up as a mild cafe racer - and last week decided that my Multistrada 1000s was done, and traded it in on a new 2014 R1200R Classic (with system sidecases and a shortie windscreen).
I'm completely amazed by the bike: it's as light, has more power and more torque as my Ducati, and actually handles better. It's even more comfortable (and my Multi was a pretty comfy bike).
I've been riding since May of '87.
So, hello there.
