I am about to purchase a '98 Dakar K1200RS. Can anyone tell me some details about the evolution of this "flying brick" motor as far as the lineage of the bike and what it transformed into over the years? I love the color scheme of the grey and yellow Dakar and the overall concept of the bike, but mostly attracted to the "Euro" styling cues and BMW classic switchgear, etc.... It seems like the "real deal" and I just can't stop thinking about it and looking at it! And I have a Ducati, a Goldwing and a beautiful Ninja, but still this German piece is getting under my skin!!
