I joined in 2005. I never did end up getting a R1150R but finally purchased a R1200R Classic. Beautiful bike and lots of fun.
I get a different bike quite often and just recently purchased a 2016 R1200R WC model. Quite a few others in between.
I agree the forum isn't as active as remember it being in the old days.

I joined in '09. I've been through a fair few bikes since my R12R, but in hindsight it was probably the one I should have kept... oh well.
Good to see Deilenberger still kicking around on here. You're a fixture, man lol.

Back in the fall of 2002 I had just bought a 2003 R1150R and was checking out web forums which was a fairly new and exciting concept then. I ran across this fellow on a Harley forum. Patrick! He suggested I come over to R1150R.org so I did. My bike was traded at 80 some odd thousand miles in 2009 for my current F650GS Twin. A young BMW auto mechanic ended up with my RR bike and was a member here at one point. May still be, but I haven't heard from him in a couple of years.
