I have a R1150R Rockster. The ONLY new bike I've ever bought new, love it so much, Over 50k miles. Riden it to several states AND to the job everyday (when I'm not out of state), in the rain and shine. Friend has a r1150r and he also takes it to work EVERYDAY as well. I have out raced MUCH faster bikes on the twistes, out performed GS and other Dual sports off road, and out run many "cruisers" on the open road. That being said, REALLY like the r1200, but since I'll never trade or give up my Rockster, guess that leaves more r1200's for everyone else.
