Hello all. My name is Neil. I have just put a deposit down on a Rockster which I hope to get within the next week or so. Are there any members in the U K. I am hoping to go to Europe when the weather improves.

Hi! My name is Milan and I always loved BMW motorcycles, but never had a chance to own one. Ever since I was 17 and my mother wouldn't lend me money to buy R27 with sidecar in perfect order (that was in 1980 in Sarajevo) I had my eye on them. In 1984, right after the Winter Olympics, there was this beautiful brand new orange R65 in the store, but because of high import tariffs, it was out of reach. Anyway, I spent my youth riding MZs, Tomos' and JAWAs but haven't been riding for 30 years now. I hope in the near future, that will change. In particular, I'm interested in boxer twin air-cooled bikes. I recently obtained my motorcycle endorsement for the driving license (took and passed basic safety motorcycle course in Oregon).

I think this is a perfect place for me to be a member as well as place for me to ask the following question: For the first bike, after 30 years of not riding, should I go for 2002 R1150R w/ 42,000 miles (on sale for $3,000) or 2011 R1200R Classic w/ 16,000 miles (on sale for $7,000)? Thank you all in advance!

Welcome to the Roadster board.
No easy answer about which bike to buy. Both options have merits, both have risk though small.
Where are you located?
Now: Rockster2, F800S, S1000R, K1300S
Then: R850R, R1100R, R1150R, Rockster1, R1200C, etc.

Thank you! I will like to take you up the offer at some point. If I can find place to garage it, for that price I think I'll go with R1150R.
