I have a new r1200rt,but the other day I found a nice old 1997 r850r with 11,000 miles on it. It runs good and sounds like a fine swiss watch running. Very smooth bike. I have never seen one before. It is one of the 100 used in the1996 Olypmic Alanta . Very trim nimble bike. Vintage beamer in the garage now. Would you pass on it?
