    think i'm going to go with the BMW dealership deal - seems like a better chance that the bike will be trouble free. super excited- can't wait to be riding! hope to head to ct in the next day or two. will check back in then.

    Seems like a clean unit. Dual plug head is a good thing. Low mileage is even better.

    Off topic question: Does anyone make an R90S or R100S-type headlight fairing for the R1150R or R1200R bikes? Would seem like a natural, to me.

    Parabellum does, they do a lot of fairings for BMWs so they'll color match it exactly. My brother in law has one on his '12 r1200r, it looks pretty damn good. Don't have any pics on my phone though

    I think you will enjoy the RR. I have an 03 RR with over 27000 miles that I really have enjoyed. Its never let me down, however last year I noticed the insulation was cracking on a lot of the wiring harness. I just went out and got an old bicycle inner tube, split it and did some creative engineering. The Germans have never been known for their wiring prowness.

    I saw this one at the National, but I don't know who makes it.

    Wunderlich R1200R 'Trophy". I didn't find it on the Wunderlich US site but did on the German site. You may find it with some digging. If not they should be able to hook you up.

    This bike was custom assembled for the owner by Morton's BMW in Fredericksburg VA, with paint done by someone they use in the Charlottesville VA area. That is a Wunderlich fairing.

    Hi Chase. It's for sale at Hudson Valley Motors- looks like I am going to go with an GS or R, and not the SA- as I would like something more comfortable for touring. Please let me know if you would like to talk with someone over there. Dwain is a super nice guy! And the bike looks to be in spectacular shape.
