    To the original question ...

    ... the “best year” for any model or generation BMW is the last year. Continuously improved.

    To the OP - do your research and make up your mind for yourself. The people who ride these bikes regularly are the ones to turn to with your questions. They'll be honest with you about what they like and what they don't. If it turns out it isn't for you, fair enough. Good luck!

    I think that the HP mods WOULD be difficult and expensive. WAY more that the cost of a better bike.






    LOL .. but what the hey, we [motorcyclist] tend to have limited restraint when it comes to our mounts

    I ride an r1200c around the city and keep a k1200rs for the long haul. Love the r1200c for around town and shorter trips.

    After 139K miles, many long trips and 17 years owning mine, I have to admit that I love this bike.
    So much so, that I bought a second one last year.
