Well done. The 1250 RS does look a tidy bike. From what I could see it looked pretty good in the alps, hairpins etc. Give us a review after a year.
I'm looking BMW now, but I've got addicted to the straight four, so its the s1000xr that is tickling my fancy.
The price of these bikes is quite frightening.  :005:

Thanks chaps.
No modifications planned just yet. Probably it will now be garaged for the winter with 28 miles on the clock. I'll see how I get on with it in standard trim.
These bikes aren't cheap. IMHO it really is worth having the ESA suspension and pro rider modes chip. I have a few other extras on there that bumped the price up considerably. What I did get as incentive was a 500 contribution towards BMW accessories - this went on the Navigator-6 which is basically a rebranded Garmin unit but it integrates with the bikes controls.
Nice.

The 1250RS got an excellent write-up in Motorcycle Monthly last month.  :028:

If anything happened to my current bike it would definitely be a contender.  :002:

That Missenden Flyer chap likes it too. Pretty soon everybody'll have one and I'll be forced to get something different again  :084:
