BMW newbie from AZ

Hello,

I am a long time rider new to BMWs. Picked up a dusty, neglected '07 K1200R Sport with 13K miles from a local Honda dealer that did not want to deal with it for a good price. Since May I have learned about GS-911, ABS, EVA, S airbox mods and a bunch of other stuff I never had to worry about on my agricultural KTM 690 Enduro...LOL.

Installed a PC-V, changed all the fluids, plugs and filters and things seem to be going very well.
Bike is respectably quick, comfortable and has bags big enough for my other half and I to enjoy a weekend up in Prescott or Sedona without drama.

Running Devil's Hwy (AZ-191) next weekend with some youngsters (FZ-09s) so I will get to finally try the Silver Bullet out at speed in the twisties.

If you are interested in day/weekend rides I have a flexible schedule and am always happy to be out rolling wether on my BMW, dirt bike, or mountain bike.

Peace,

~B
