1) Has anybody made a similar switch and regretted it?
2) Will the BMW sport panniers that I have for the K-bike work on the R1200R?
I went from a GS, RT, and an F800ST to the R and am very happy. So easy to get around town. Also, have ridden a few rides exceeding 200 miles and very comfortable. Of course not as much protection from the elements, but that's what I wanted.
Yes on the cases (edit - but no for the sport cases), but you might need the side rails added as an option. Not very $$.
