R1200 C Bikes

I don't have one but am thinking I like them and may become a 2nd bike for me. Why doesn't there seem to be much interest shown here on the forum? Is there something wrong with them?

Re: R1200 C Bikes

When I owned one I was active on chromeheads.org. Check them out.

Nothing wrong with the C, I loved my bike. And it got a huge amount of attention. I was tricked into buying an LT by a sneaky dealer.

Re: R1200 C Bikes

An R1200C is the perfect accessory to a K1200LT (or is that the other way around )

chromeheads referenced above is the place for anything related to the C which is probably why there is little about them here, most people are going there. It's a fun bike and it really gets a lot of looks.

If you are seriously thinking about buying one, a little advice I would give is get one with every accessory you think you want, and don't be tempted to get that cheaper one down the street that doesn't have whatever. Accessories are non-existent new, the only think out there is used and NOS, and the prices for accessories used are more than the price new. If you wanted to fit up saddlebags to it you would be looking at or close to $1,000 for bags and brackets, and that's after you spend a year scouring flea-bay and the chromeheads marketplace for them. LT accessories are cheap when you compare to C. You really should find one that has all the bells and whistles, then you can remove the ones you don't want and either keep them in case or sell them for ridiculous amounts of money, ask more than you think reasonable and watch the line of people waiting to hand your their money form.
