Hello from Sweden

Hi new to the BMW community just got a 2005 K1200R to my selection. Well see how it turns out.
Not really a specific brand junkie, just try to get the bikes that ill like.
Some ill keep long some i dont. History so far above 125cc.
Honda VF400R 1984
Triumph T100 1969
Honda CB900F Bol'or 1983
Yamaha FZR1000 1990 still got it
Kawasaki Z1300 1982 still got it
Kawasaki GPz1100 1982 still got it
BMW K1200R just got it...
im more into older bikes but this one struck a chord.
Torque and comfort as the z1300
Speed and revs like the FZR1000
Madness as the GPz1100.
Cheers!

Welcome. I had a 82 GPZ 1100 for a few years! Maybe you can post up some pictures.

Re: Hello from Sweden

thanks well the bikes are photogenic in reality they have their battle scars. i ride them way more often than i clean them. And "mint" isnt for me, cant afford it and im to lazy to keep them on their toes.
