I've owned a R1200R for about 6k miles of riding and traveling. Great bike. Boring...? Compared to other naked bike options, most definitely. A Monster 1100, a Speed Triple,....those are its naked-bike brethren. And the choice becomes clear...if I have to tolerate the wind blast from a naked bike, that bike needs to be a hooligan.

The R1200R is nice, don't get me wrong. It's nice, like your elderly aunt is nice.
