Excellent Review gentlemen. Nice Pictures. Road Racing world this issue has a review of the 2006 BMW K1200R to be used in the "new Boxer" cup series. I think their comments were inline with Sean's concerns about the vaque steering. Nice work great reading....Thanks..KPaul

Default BMW Turnsignals

I love their turn-signal switchgear. They are super easy to use and cancel. -Sean

I rode three different K1200S', including the one that Gabe rode down from San Francisco. They all have the same FI and Braking issues. -Sean

Did they actually ride the bike, or was it just a tech breifing with some BMW stock photos?

According to the article he did ride the bike. An ex-BMWphile did the dirty work. I just received the issue in the mail yesterday.

I knew it had to happen some day, I completely disagree with you (not that you will lose any sleep over it). I totally hate the BMW switchgear, I find it so much easier to have the classic UJM switch on the left with press to cancel.

And I also hate the whole cruiser key location thing, a little standardization isn't going to kill your rugged individualism ya know.

Was anyone else annoyed by the visual distortion looking through the windshield? Both videos I looked at had horrible distortions on both sides.

Default I disagree

While I certainly have complaints about my 2003 VFR's FI, my 2002 R1 (fuel injected) had the most perfect fuel metering I had ever experienced, carb or FI. It was magical.
