    Hi Boys and Girls,

    I've just ordered a brand new RS so I thought let's join this forum. I'm Erik, living in the city of Almere in The Netherlands and I've been riding motorcycles ever since 1972. My current bikes are a 2016 R1200GS Triple Black and a 1996 BMW F650 Funduro, the latter just for the fun of it.

    Hope to learn and possibly contribute to this forum.

    Regards,

    TenCats aka Erik.

    Welcome/welkom Erik, sure you'll enjoy the RS once you get it. Which color did you order, gray and red Style1, like me, or something different?

    It's going to be the "all black" 2018 model. Didn't like the Sport style addings, so I only ordered the engine spoiler in black (not in the picture). Plus all other options except the navigator V itself as I already have one on the current bike.

    Changed my mind and luckily I could because I knew my BMW dealer didn't put the order in the BMW computer yet. By now he did so I'm stuck with a BMW R1200RS "Exclusive", full options which will be built in January en delivered in February. Can't wait but I'll have to as the roads could be salted overhere due to low temperatures untill March or even April. If so I could always put the bike in the livingroom as a piece of art to be looked at.

    Is the Exclusive a special color or spec? Didn't know it existed... ;) I also have all options, except a high or low seat, and don't regret paying for any of those options!

    That's what it says on the order: "Style variable 2, Exclusive". It's one with the Frozen Bronze, Blackstorm Metallic paint. I believe the other Style variable (nr.1) with the red frame is called "Sport". You'll see the same with the GS versions "Ralley and Exclusive".

    Beautiful bike you have there. But, I'll stick to the bronze/black combination. If I'm disappointed, which I doubt, I'll have it wrapped into black.
    But for now I simply have to wait 2 more months (at least).

    Saw the Frozen Bronze in real life today at the dealer, a beautiful color scheme indeed :cool:, good choice! Not tempted to trade in my Style 1 Sport though... ;)
