    New (ish) member from the SF Bay Area in California

    I've actually been a member for two months or so, but haven't posted or really ready anything. I've got an old, restored and modified R75/6 set up as a mild cafe racer - and last week decided that my Multistrada 1000s was done, and traded it in on a new 2014 R1200R Classic (with system sidecases and a shortie windscreen).

    I'm completely amazed by the bike: it's as light, has more power and more torque as my Ducati, and actually handles better. It's even more comfortable (and my Multi was a pretty comfy bike).

    I've been riding since May of '87.

    So, hello there.

    Vroom indeed, and welcome aboard. What's your name?
    The R12R is a fine bike; I just rode mine yesterday down 25/198/33 to Ojai and Santa Barbara, returning home today.
    How about a picture of the R?

    Welcome!

    Glad to have you here and hope to read some nice road trip articles of your rides in the Bay area.

    My favorite place to visit but I've never been there with a motorcycle.

    Glad to hear you like the R. They are one sweet ride.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Great to see another R12R owner here . I traded my 2010 F650GS for the 2013 R12R and absolutely love the bike. I also live in SF and found a couple others over at advrider.com on an extremely long R12R thread. How are you liking the change in bikes? Considering any accessories?

    Awesome! I'm down in Redwood City. Would love to ride with some other BMWs.
