I do like it! If it were me I'd get different wheels but the rest of the bike is bitchen.
That would look killer with the split 5s off the 1150.
Either box looks good. Found the smaller of the two on Ebay and a mounting rack from another vendor on Ebay. Just waiting for delivery.
Hope wifey likes her new back rest.
New to me, I bought the same bike in 2005 and sold it for a Harley.
The only difference is this one is ABS.... Even the same dealer
for you both
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.
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.
After the trip, a little cleaner... still haven't gotten one of the TVIP stickers completely off though :)
Can't go any further.
533 mile day
David. The bike turned over to 26,000 miles.
leave the luggage off!
Because it looks like this!
That one would require at least three trips, were that individual needed to haul ass...
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!
it's only ugly with topcase and windshield.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, same for ugly, no?
Then there's the form vs function approach.....
Those side bags ARE big but capacious and practical. I sold my top box. Most of the time when I'm out riding I'm camping so the more bag space the better. If you're worried about looks I don't know what to tell you.
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
