Hi Colin, I am Geoff from Newcastle and I just bought my first second-hand bike since I was a kid after having a lost count of bikes over the years I know the BMW is almost bulletproof so thought A 2018 R1200RT Mars Red Sports like your bike with 22,500 klms and all the BMW service history was a good buy. I got my local dealership to buy it from a Dealer in the ACT and put a Shad top case on along with 12 months rego. I am loving it after owning way too many bikes.Hi all,
Colin from the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
Just got my first ever BMW, a near new 2018 R1200RT with only 15,000 Km's on the clock. Still coming to terms with all the features but am loving it.
Have been riding for about 30 years and have owned a Suzuki 185 2 stroke, a Kawasaki 250, a Yamaha XV 750, a Yamaha FJ 1200 a Yamaha FJ1300 and now the Beemer. The BMW is the pick of the lot and am very happy.
In Mars Red I think it looks great.
Thanks! Funny story behind that pic. I saw this dirt road in Arizona and set my GoPro to take a random picture every minute. I had it on a selfie stick in the side pouch of my soft case. After about 10 minutes I look back and my GoPro is gone.. I turned around, started looking and found it 3 minutes back. The camera took 3 great shots and then a pic of the sky and about 4 face down in the mud. Anyway, that's where I captured the moment.Epic shot!
Nope, I flew up to Bob's BMW (via BWI) on July 30th and picked up the bike the next morning.Up on the Dragon during the RA Rally?
