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.

I joined in 2013, the same year that I bought my hold over 2011 R1200R. Just passed 52,500 miles coming back from the MOA National Rally Monday. The bike is running better now than ever. I've had a couple issues which though disappointing were easily fixed. Transmission input seal and counter balance seal went bad at 28k miles, replaced seals and clutch disk ABS sensor went bad, replaced. Replaced both oxygen sensors. She's about ready for disks and pads. I'm on my fourth fuel strip, seems I get to replace every year with tires. Wife keeps pushing me to get a new bike, I cannot for the life of me imagine a better handling machine.

I can imagine. Go test ride a LC R1200R. It's incredible.

I think it will be a lightly used RT, camhead, maybe a wet head. I'm surprised just how many there are on the market for some pretty short money. I'm wanting to pull a trailer, going to get a hitch fabricated and fitted to the '11 R1200r and see how it goes, if that works out ok, it will be a few years. In any event that bike will be with me forever, there will be no selling it, maybe a sidecar when I can no longer balance.
