A Balanced Approach

Girl Wonder told me that before buying a new motorcycle, we should check out the new BMWs. When your woman is the one to suggest motorcycle shopping, you don't question it. You find your riding gear and get there any way you can before she changes her mind.

We've been riding so much in the dirt the last few years, I figured that we should give the 650 X-series bikes a look. What we discovered instead was the 2007 R1200R; A bike with classic roots that have evolved into a modern, cutting-edge motorcycle. With its striking appearance, relaxed ergos, Telelever suspension, and ABS, the R1200R is one of the finest motorcycles I've ridden. Precise handling, 109 ponies and plenty of torque make the package irresistible.
