    R1200cl

    I just bought a R1200CL and have put a 1k miles on it. My first BMW was a new 1970 750/5 which I still have. My friends gave me a hard time about riding a old man's bike because it was a BMW. I've gone full circle and I am back to a old man's bike, I guess.

    I am really enjoying this machine though.

    All that matters is that you like it. It doesn't matter what others think.
    Glad you're enjoying the CL. Very nice bike ...

    No BMW is an old man's bike. I know plenty of young chicks who ride them too

    My first BMW was also a new R75/6...this was my all time favorite
    Beemer until I got my CLC. I've put over 1.1k on my bike so far and it just keeps getting better each time out. I remember how in the seventies BMW's were often called an old man's bike but these newer machines are far from being an old man's bike even though I'm considered as being much closer to being an old man...
    Fortunately I still think I'm much younger...if only I could convince my body of that !! :cool:
    Keep on Beem'n,
    Rich :cool:

    Bodenny, you're enjoying it. That's all that matters. And I've seen young'uns on airheads.

    Enjoy the ride.

    "No BMW is an old man's bike. I know plenty of young chicks who ride them too "

    Now I'm having an identity crisis. Having traded in my K1200LT for a R1200CLC - reading this post, I no longer know who I am.

    Where is there help, truth or justice?

    No matter what - the CLC is my 3rd Beemer and my favorite!!!

    Someone submitted the chromeheads patch. The selection came up when I registered.

    Kevin, you are a Chromehead moderator, right......

    Your comment: "club, well sort of"......... Might you expand on that thought.
