Hi All just a quick introduction . My Partner has just changed her GS foe a 17 plate R1200R and loves it. I myself have a GSA but ride the 1200R and what a great bike it is . Quite different to the GS. Looking forward to getting tips and info from you guys and also , hopefully , be able to contribute to the Forum too. Been Riding since the late 1970's and had many BMWs over the years along with other makes. I do a lot of my own maintenance and have rebuilt a couple of Air Heads in the past. At present we have the 1200R the GSA and a 10 plate Harley Road King. My Partner used to race bikes and is a fan of Sports stuff whereas I'm more your Adventure /tourer kind of guy. Look forward to the forum.
