I saw a R1200R on a showroom floor (and I had zero interest in BMW at the time) and thought it did a great job of looking like a quintessential motorcycle for the time (~2010). For those that weren't paying attention then, there wasn't much that wasn't a cruiser, a sport bike, or an adventure bike. (Or used and with a variety of quirks - not the thing for a new rider). Now we have scads of naked standards at all points on the price spectrum, and it is lovely. But not then. It was a few years before I could make one happen, but I did. It isn't always perfect, and I think about replacing it from time to time (why does a modern FI bike bitch and moan in cold weather worse than the carbed EX500 I used to have?), but I haven't yet found an obviously superior replacement (because when that happens, I'll buy it).
