I keep coming back to this picture. My Oh my that's a good looking bike. I may have to get one of those windshields for MY 07 R1200R.

Just received and installed Cee Bailey Touring Windshield on my 12R. Link is below. Verdict: I like it a lot. They work pretty good. Air hits top of the helmet. No buffeting to speak of.

There are hints on the website of a special model with front forks instead of telelever, coming in 2013. Maybe the "last edition" of the hexhead motor?
Not sure if I would consider those (water cooled motor & regular forks over telelever) an advancement

I've been happy with my barkbusters... easy to find and easy to remove come summer.

Got some pics of my new Cee Bailey touring windshield. For those of you considering a windshield for your 12R, recommend it highly.

windshield

Ok, so I've never ridden with a windshield before. I know it'll keep the wind, bugs, and rocks off me and improve my gas mileage but how else will it affect the ride? Does it affect the steering dramatically? How does it react in a severe crosswind? What should I expect (generally speaking)?

Basically get the cold wind off your upper body or rain if your run into wet weather while riding. Haven't noticed much improvement in gas mileage. No noticeable impact on steering nor in cross wind. Makes riding more pleasurable during colder months or riding at highway speeds for long stretch.

Not great ones... I'll grab a few better shors this weekend, but heres some that will give you the idea. Single point mounts just to the inside of the grip housings and surprisingly very stable at speed

Me too, I'm going to test ride one in early March, when the weather gets better and the dealers allow test rides again. If everything works according to plan I might own one a few days later.
I already sat on one in Nuremberg at the dealer a few days ago, nice bike, and I like the boxer (rode the GS a few times already)

Tank Bag?

I just picked up an '04 R1150R to augment my K sidecar rig. What tankbags are you using? Not necessarily looking for a large multivario type, just something smaller for the remote, epass, gloves, etc.
