Hello, new BMW owner here!
I just wanted to stop by and say hello, fore tomorrow I will have a K1200R. The story is as follows: I have been looking for an upgrade for my '07 Ducati 695 Monster and I had been almost everywhere and looked at many different bikes. I was searching for something more comfortable with more power. There is a BMW dealer less then a mile away from my house, but I had never stopped in thinking that the cost would be too high for what I was willing to pay. But I raised off my duff and rode over there. I was drawn to a K1200R sitting in the showroom. The employee began to tell me the story of someone who purchased one and it had too much power for them and they were trying to sell it for, what I thought, was a pretty good price. So I asked "oh is he still trying to sell it?" The employee responded with "it's this one right here." I was taken a bit aback because I thought it was a brand new showroom condition bike, because that is how it looked. We began to talk about the bike and he began to tell me a little bit more about it. It was loaded with many options. It was an '06 with only 1600 miles on it, which is less then I have put on my Ducati in 9 months. Then came the price, apparently the bike was on consignment and the owner really wanted it to move. So when he told me "10,000" I thought that I had to jump and that and take advantage of the deal. So I did, and tomorrow I'll have a K1200R sitting in my garage.
