ATTENTION K12R pilots!

First off, Merry Christmas to all.

(If you are a heathen and are offended, well I understand. Just know that Christ loves ya anyway.)


Will any of you consider the R1200R when it comes out & is available for test rides?

Same to you.


As I am an ex R1150R rider I did consider the R1200R and took a ride (not from a dealer but from a friend), vast improvement from the R1150R and I really liked the extra power and the weight reduction but after I took a test ride with the K1200R I new that was the bike for me.

Nope.

Not going to do it. Happy with what's in the garage right now, and when I finally do sell the -R it will either not be replaced or replaced by something else.

Na, think I'll keep my K-R. Course' if that fairing from the K-R Sport is available as an add on, I might consider that, but otherwise I'm staying put

Thanx and Merry Christmas and all that stuff to you to!

39C here yesterday..... K-R riding not so pleasurable!

The R1200R? after the Rockster and the R1200ST, I really like the boxer motor.. but... the K keeps on going in the revs when the R's thrown in the towel. So I don't think I'll be trading yet.

Well, thanks. I may not really believe, but season greetings are always welcome.

I've been through an R1150R, and if the K-R was never born, I'd probably have upgraded that way. But now, no way in hell.
