I used to own this R1200R. Guy I sold it to must have traded it in.

I did the fairing mount...very quiet and smooth. Perfect for this bike, IMHO...somebody ought to buy it.

Hi guys/ladies,
So glad Advrider has a R****R thread. Will be reading through all the interesting stuff about this wonderful bike.
Here's mine over a year ago in Tuxpan, Veracruz on my way to Guate.

Cheers-

After the trip, a little cleaner... still haven't gotten one of the TVIP stickers completely off though :)

If you move the camera in as close as you did, the bike with luggage would look pretty bad. Now try that strategy from the front with the cylinders, and the exaggerated perspective will prove the BMW boxer is a fugly bike!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, same for ugly, no?

Then there's the form vs function approach.....

I don't like top boxes either.

I use a Revpak 30" bag bungeed. It's soft and collapses with less in.



That said - it doesn't have the security aspect of the top box.

I could store most of what I own in that bag. Does look more "Adventure" oriented than a top box, though.

BTW, why did you let the RS go? Looks sweet.

I like an expandable Cortek bag daily and in conjunction with the locking side cases it carries a large amount.



Here's the bag as I ride 'round town.

Just a photo of my '07 with retro stripes that I just posted in the Pennsylvania Tag-o-Rama thread. I've owned it since new, and it's been an extremely reliable and economical boxer.

It was sweet and it's a saga .

I promised my bride I would give up riding at 70. Did a failed 50CC (56 hrs) and sold it all.

Late last year I talked the bride into not getting on my case, if I did it again; this time at 75 - but only one way. She bought it.

Bought a R1150R in DelRay Fl., went to bikeweek and took it home to San Fran Bay Area.

It was a sweet ride Sun to Sun 4,200 miles. The first time I had a leg over in 5 years.

I'm changing the bars on my R for the Euro bars which is closer to the seat orientation of the RS

That's my story and I'm sticking with it
