Currently enjoying the F800R. After 20 year away from riding the F800R seemed like a good training bike and a gentle introduction. Of course, on the back rounds of southern Illinois the cross winds reminded me consistly I was using an urban bike the wrong way.
The R1200R may have faults, some unfinished points as does the F800. They are the "naked" bikes and will remain unpolished; at least at that price point.
My only point of curiousity is I am currently seated directly over the engine. With the R1200, I will be behind the cylinders and connected to the Telelever suspension. Some reeducating of my riding style is needed but why is the Telelever such a point of contention?
Is old school mixed with the new bits the wrong approach? Do we need bikes that have larger displacements than some cars, and possibly more plastic?
Give me updated and naked; along as that drive shaft behaves, I will be an iconic design in its truest form.
