    Hi All,
    Well, I finally did it. After much soul searching I have bought an R1200RS to eventually take the place of my much loved 2002 R1150RS. My old bike has given me excellent service not missing a beat except for a replacement fuel line. It still looks like new. I made the decision as I'm now 75 years old and reckon I'll be riding for another 10 years or so. The 1150 has servo brakes and if the servo unit fails I"m in financial trouble! Just to make sure though, I'm keeping the 1150 for a couple of months just in case!
    So far, the 1200 is excellent, such a responsive powerful engine and easy to throw around corners. Downsides are the indicator switch (prefer the old BMW way) and the complicated display, but I'll get used to it I guess!
    Upside is this great forum. It's good to know that I can get good feedback (I hope!) from you guys if there's a problem and just to know there's a community out there of like minded riders.

    Keep up the good work.
