Phil.........we are thrilled to have you joining our ranks........but open your eyes. Of course the new R12S is entirely different than the previous rear end designs that came before it. BMW would do anything to be able to take back the design mistake made in the last generation Oilheads.......the biggest of which was to have all the weight, suspension loading, and bump and jump of a full size BMW motorcycle riding on two thin wispy sets of needle bearings. Not to worry Phil. The new bike is entirely different and much has been written on the subject. Read my ride report on the Press Intro of the K12S in ON magazine last summer. I think I talked about the new rear end design and for sure it has been covered in detail in Motorcycle Consumer News. Get ready to ride, get in physical shape, and quit worrying about the decision you have made or the bike you have chosen.
