    the 11, 1150, and 12R are all some of the most interesting and most under appreciated bikes on the road.

    Just got an 07 R1200R on Wednesday, paid for it on Tuesday but did not want to take a new to me bike home in the rain.

    Have already put 200 miles on it. Love it...

    Will try and get a few photos up this weekend.

    Anyone know of any engine guards that aren't super expensive? I got low enough on the snake today to hit the valve cover...

    I have a set of the abs guards but don't know how they will hold up to dragging. I am in need of fog lights and want them low and on the forks. A friend suggested a custom fabricating shop for some brackets. surely one of these places could roll some sheet aluminum into guards. my 2 cents.:1drink

    Not only do you need engine guards, but it would appear that toe guards would be in order too!
