wanting to buy a 2006 R1200S

I currently ride a 2006 Ducati S2R 1000 Monster. I am looking at selling this bike and getting a new 2006 R1200S. My concern is I am only 5'6", 160 lbs. Is the bike too big for me?

I think you will be fine. I found the bike to feel small and light, but then I ride a K1200LT! Take one for a test ride... that's one of the great advantages of buying a BMW!
