Re: R1200C = Great Intro to BMW
The R12C was my "return to cycling" bike after a 20 hiatus due to financial limitations. I bought a '99 black one like that in April of 2000, then logged up just shy of 72K miles. By August of 2004 that one met an untimely demise near Taos, NM. My brother in law had borrowed it and got rear ended by one of those V-twin noisy guys who was afraid of his front brake. By October that year, I had replaced the '99 with a 2000 pacific blue one. I spent a few months planning and executing a custom project on it. 22 modifications later; I had this one done and still loving it at close to 112K miles. My personal opinion is the R12C may well be one of the best bikes ever built by BMW. I have a couple of others that are faster and better handling, but the C is still my favorite ride.
