It took me a bit to mesh with the R1200 boxer motor, but once I did I have come to really appreciate it's character and how well it propels the bike.

Glad you are enjoying it and wishing you many happy miles.  It can be a great bike to ride!

Very nice and a perfect road to ride home on.
Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

Beautiful.  Evokes memories of 1988, unlicensed, getting my chops on a SuperMagna and chilling on the PCH.  I was, perhaps, the coolest person on the planet that day. 

Congrats and enjoy!

Congrats Doc!
Love the ride, something about the BMW Boxer  :beerchug:

Of the way on in or the way back out.
