My New R1200S!

After waiting over a month for Haulbikes to deliver my bike, she has arrived!

I can't tell you how impressed I am with the bike especially compared to the R1100s I previously owned. Its a night and day and to be honest, the R1200S is more comfortable, particularly to the Heli-bars that came on it.

Bike has 3400 miles and literally looks BRAND NEW!

Im still figuring out the mods the previous owner performed, but so far so good.

Ill post more pics after a proper photoshoot.

My CBR1000RR SP is definitely going to get less attention now.

Congrats!

I think I'll take mine out for a ride to help you celebrate.

I'm sure all of our yellow bikes came from this facility.

I took it out this morning to go get inspection and registration. It really is an amazing bike. So smooth, right amount of power for the street, and throaty duc-like sound!

Why the bike wasn't well received, I have no clue? Im literally looking at my 2015 CBR1000RR SP thinking "Why do I need this now?"

Anything I should know about the bike? I havent noticed any powerband dip like the R1100s and the handling feels like the bike is a featherweight!!!

Looking forward to posting some updated pictures and a ride review once I get some seat time.

BTW, how rare is the R1200S tank bag. I have one of those too, but cant see myself using it after I bought a OGIO DRAG Mach 5 Backpack.

Welcome to the pack! I love my R1216$ and could never think of selling her. I have no idea what I would get that is as much fun to ride.

I have one mod left to install and after that I will be finished. I just cannot take it upon myself to disassemble the bike again to install the slipper clutch because I would miss riding her too much.
