re R12 sales drop post K12RT release? Won't happen. BMW folks will keep buying flat twins until the cows come home.



However you may be correct re "conquest" sales. But then the R series was never a conquest bike, either.

It would only have been nuts if you'd revealed that you used an old milk crate on the chrome luggage rack...



Hopefully you didn't go that far.

electronic cruise, heated everything, electronically adjustable suspension, trip computer, better suspension and handling (subjective, of course)...



its all reflected in the price, but I'm just saying those are the features I believe the original poster was desiring...

Default re: heating options, cruise control, and music: FJR or ST1300

I have an ST1300 myself now. You don't need heating options on an FJR1300 or ST1300. Both of 'em roast your nuts and legs.

As for cruise control, a ThrottleMeister is a decent approximation for the superslab drone, it just doesn't adjust for hills, where you probably shouldn't be using it anyway.

Stereo is an option for the Honda, but you have to order it from Europe or go aftermarket. A small mp3 player and Etymotic earplugs works fine on just about any motorcycle, though.

Default re: small 'personal' touring bike

You just described the VFR. I loved my '98 with Givi WingRack.

I also had a WingRack on a Bandit 1200S, also a great 'personal tourer', but a bit more upright riding position and better touring motor, in my opinion - not as peaky.
