So I guess I'll start off this new area. On the day of the launch I did my pre-order and got my confirmation. She will make a nice addition to her older sisters.
Now I need to come up with a name...

Here are my current stablemates.

Gretchen - 2001 R1200C
Griselda - 2012 K1600GTL
141457
141458

Gretchen's purty! I know those bikes didn't have a lot of power, but it makes me mad every time I see the shots calling them ugly. I think the R1200C was gorgeous, and don't get the insults. Now, was it really an American-style cruiser, like BMW tried to market it? No. But it's one of the most original designs I've ever seen for a motorcycle, and neat piece of both company history, and motorcycle history in general, and fits in perfectly with the quirky vibe BMW had, especially at the time.

Keep us updated when the new bike gets here!
