Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I've been hoping that there would finally be added a section specifically for us Beemer owners! Now, if there were only more of us to populate it! (crickets chirping in the background...)

How do you like that "K" bike?

I've been thinking I might like to have one in naked form.(can't remember what they call it)

.Make a difference today,smile at someone.

Ya never know,it just may change their life.

Your word is all you have in life that is truly yours. Guard it carefully and be something noble.

Do what you say you'll do, be there when you say you will. This is called integrity

Courtesy cost nothing and gives you everything.

You're welcome... A buddy of mine is getting a Beemer and I wanted to get him to joing the site since I like it so much... so I made a suggestion and Fred liked it and VIOLA! there you have it!

Enjoy though...I will likely stick to my Hondas

I've read lots of good reviews. Definitely a bike I could go for.

Well, I have an '01 R1100S and recently placed a K1200S next to it in the barn. Both are OUTSTANDING. If you don't mind some pics...

Wow, it's surprising to see a BMW forum on SBN now! Very cool. They have some really sweet bikes around now... the K1200R being foremost, in my mind.

I'd really like to check out an R1100S or Rockster someday, but finances will probably keep me off of a BMW for quite some time to come. Damned things don't lose value quickly enough.

I love it! My last bike was an old K100, and I'll tell ya, there's really no comparison. I've got over 6000 miles on it now, after having it for about 2 months, and it still amazes me how nimble and powerful it is. I have no doubt that it will be many years, if ever, before I will have the skill to ride this machine to anywhere near it's potential.

Ahh, you got the grey one... Just out of curiosity, which options did you get on your "S" The reason I'm asking, is that I'm having to get my GPS replaced on warranty, because the touch-screen delaminated. Check this out...
