Good for you Andrew, what colour have you gone for? Did you have a test ride on the K1200S? If so, why did you pick the R over the K? I've not had a test ride on any of the new bikes yet. I'm going to try and get a whole day test riding back to back. 1200GS, new 800, K & R 1200S. All followed by...

I think it's probably going to be a velcro-on pouch to fit the pillion perch, for keeping one spare pair of skidders in

and until then you 1200s guys will just have use the old 'Turn them inside out' method. :shock:

Hey Nick, thanks for your reply. Yes, I was exaggerating for effect :) , however I'm very surprised at the very narrow field of view. I even coughed up more scrotes to get the expensive lenses with the wider progression corridor. Do you find your peripheral vision being out of focus is a cause of co...

Varifocal glasses

Still trying to get used to my new(ish) varifocal lenses. Traversing the living room is getting easier (how long does a bruise on a cat take to disappear?), although the stairs are downright dangerous wearing these things. I have only tripped over a kerb stone once. Still, the lady I groped as I sto...

Ouch ya b@st@rd.

Sounds like you will be out of action for a few months. At least you can sit next to Roooneey and watch the action on the box!

Get well soon.

Paying for petrol ..... some garages insist that helmets are removed before you enter the shop to cough up your hard earned. A right pain. If you have a flip front then it is easy! Which is why I now have a BMW integral hat ...... :? Very very quiet, great fit,quite light too.

Help, my eyes are going .....

My screen has gone all wishy washy.
Can computers get anaemia, or has the colour been toned down on purpose to show respect for the new kid on the block? :shock:
Lets have more colour in DDP!

Okay, I'm just an old fart that is resistant to changes! :lol:

R1200S Review

in full in next weeks MCN. They have ridden it already as they were going to print. There is also a review of most 2006 bikes. The S is listed with no verdict yet, although the paper commited to giving it a mark of 7 out of 10. Looking at other bikes and their scores I was left with the feeling that...

Some years ago when hammering around the B roads near Truro in my trusty Fulvia (Lancia) I learnt about being able to stop in the distance you can see.
