Found this site when finding a repair for my ABS. Absolutely the best
I have an older 86 K75C and a 07 R1200RT.
I sold my GL1500 to buy the RT. Have had 3 Wings, 2 GL1200 and the 1500.
Love the RT now that I have been able to fix the sticking brush in the ABS servo motor. The miles are piling up. Purchased in late June at 21K and has 26K now.
Thanks to all the wonderful people that have contributed to this site... Makes owning a BMW much more affordable.

Soory don't drink much wine. Plus I'm retired... extra $$$ not... Was a Good thought.
Funny you should mention those 2 years. Have a friend with an 11, R1200RT that had an oil leak somewhere. Asked me to fix it and didn't want it back till fixed.... can do buddy.. well first I had to clean it up and then ride for awhile to run the leak down. Bad crush washer on the left cam chain tensioner. Now I had to ride it to make sure it was no longer leaking... Well 300 miles later, I say Dude here is your bike back.. Oh you can keep it longer if you want.. No seriously here is your bike, any longer and you won't get it back.
Also found this site when researching the K1200/1300GT. Was looking at getting one before the deal on the RT.

Hi,

my mobility is mostly on 2 wheels. Have 1 race and one mt-bike. And engineered ones a K1200 GT vintage 2004 and the 4rd scooter SH125AD for local moves and all season. Otherwise I am retired since 2009 and enjoy my life with mountaineering (winter & summer) and museology.
