Hi all,
Just picked up a 2002 R1150R with under 7000 miles on it. Single owner in great condition. A step up from my Shadow 600. I'm in Alaska so this style of bike and it's touring capabilites are perfect up here. I'll be going above the arctic circle on the Dalton Highway this summer with a few friends. Plans are in the works! Anyway, glad I found this site dedicated to these bikes. Already hit a couple of threads for questions I had. Look forward to seeing you all on the boards.

Congrats on your new 1150R. A good choice for Alaska. I lived up there for many years in Fairbanks and ride a R1200R. Your post is in the R1200R area of the forum and there is a section devoted to the 1150R. You'll find more pertinent info about your bike over there; but, don't forget us completely.... we are much smarter and better looking over in this area. :lol:

Dear All,
I'm new here and would like to say hi.
Age: 45
Country: Netherlands.
Bike: R1150R (2005) + R1200GS LC (2013).

The R1150R is to be delivered by next week, just in time to wrap it and place it under the X-Mas tree as a present to...... me myself and I :mrgreen:
It comes with warrantly, so if anything will show up there will be some time to get it fixed.
Only thing left is to have my Nav IV fitted, so if you have any advise on the placement, I will gladly take it.

Best Regards 8)

Hi everyone, recently purchased a 04 Rockster, loving it so far! This forum looks great, I have already been taping in the endless source of advice a few times!
Cheers from Baltimore, Maryland.

There is a post approval feature of this board the first couple times you post. After that they will show up immediately. Its our way of alleviating spam so you don't have to see it! We work tirelessly behind the scenes, haha.

You should be all set now.

I think you can't change your username here, isn't it?
