What I want for Christmas.....

  1. I am an old fart and always had a soft spot for Beemers. One of my first bike around 1980 was a second hand R90S which was launched around 1974 in response to the four cylinder invasion by the Japs, lead by Honda's 750F. The R90S was cutting edge, being (AFAIK) the first production road bike with a fairing, had an aggressive orange color and was the most sporty Beemer at the time. I loved the bike.

    So I like the R1200 R as it is a lighter Beemer (around 200KG) in the old style. But it looks a bit boring, so I was quite excited when I saw the customised version by Wunderlich in Germany that takes the R1200 and gives it this great R90S look. I want it! - if I had the money....
