After lurking around this forum I purchased my 13 th road bike (4th brand new one!) in my now 25 yrs of being a licensed rider (now 42!) AND only 1 day and 133 miles later and this is my favorite!Lucky #13 is a black XR1200 that was picked up on Saturday evening and is going back to the shop to get the ; black smoked windscreen, hard bags, luggage rack WITH backrest installed and then pretty soon some pipes! This is the first bike in a long, long time that i do not want to get off! Got home sat night and had a storm chase me in so only 18 miles, yesterday went 107 and today one way to work (8miles). I will be using this as my daily driver hence the set up. This replaces my K1200rs Bmw I had last year. BUT this is the first time in better 15 yrs that I made a long term commitment and went new! Wife thinks its a mid life crisis but I am to young for that! Looking forward to sharing how the bike is all set up later this week! Best regards!
