Looking at buying a K1200R or K1200S over the next couple of months. I was really only considering the S until taking the R for a test ride the weekend before last. I was thinking S because I thought I needed the additional wind protection. I also preferred the look. But...the R is growing on me. I don’t know if I’d call the look attractive but it is interesting. I didn’t find the wind too bad although I wasn’t on the highway for more than a half hour. I guess it comes down to the type of riding you do and for me most of my riding is around town seldom exceeding 50 or 60 mph...short bursts of acceleration, when I can get away with it, up to those speeds. Still, it’s the 4 or 5 day summer tours I enjoy the most and I might find the R too tiring (due to the wind blast) over that kind of ride. Mind you, I’m only going to do a couple of those rides per year due to time and family constraints. The R is a few thousand cheaper but that’s not a huge consideration. Thoughts?
