Hahaha.
I am hoping to save a bunch on gas for that commute though. 45-50mpg vs 19 in my truck adds up fast!


Gas mpg equation for cost also changes if your chosen bike can run on regular and not require premium.

Another plus for the FJR.

Runs great. I just took it out for a 4 hour ride last weekend, and it ran perfectly. Just cracked 10,000 miles.


Currently wearing Pirelli Angel GT tires that I would say are good for another 800-1000 miles - I am including a new set of Dunlop Roadsmart III tires with purchase of the bike.

      Converts into a comfortable back-pack.

         Zip and buckle closure.
         Panniers are expandable to roughly double width.
         Internal water resistant draw-string liner.
         Easily removed from bike.
         Locks to bike with internal key.
         Mounting hardware goes on/off bike quickly and easily (only 3 bolts per side).

         Service stand
         New set of Dunlop Roadsmart III tires
         Spare Air Filter
         Spare Engine Oil Filter

OP Q as seen through my personal filters:

"I have more money than I need so I have this list of bikes which will help me resolve that problem."

I also have a 2015 FJR, 53,000 miles, I bought new and have had zero issues with it. It is my traveling bike and very positive about it. It ticks a lot of boxes making it a great value and a rewarding bike to travel long distances to the twisties.


Yep!

Zig, looking like you might have an Italian bike problem, similar to mine except mine are with much less costly Guzzis.

You've got some serious art there!   Inlove

Congrats.

I'll weigh in with my opinion on the 2007 R1200RT. I have a 2007 R1200GS (bought it from a friend 6 years ago at 16,000 miles) and find the motor power is not a worry unless you like to do a lot of long triple digit runs. it will go from 70 to 90 quite quick and loves to cruise at 5000 rpm, which will be well above any posted sped limit. The regular maintenance is easy for your average guy except for the ABS and some other gadgets. That takes special tools I don't have. Mine has 54,000 miles and the motor, gearbox and drive have been zero problems. The suspension needed new shocks about 45,000 miles. The biggest issue for me is the gadgets. The ABS pump went out at 42,000 miles (heard that is common), the TPM units batteries dies in the 30,000s, and then the throttle side grip heater quit last fall at about 50,000. Seems everything needed to fix those problems is 3X the cost to fix a metric bike, which really puts me off and makes the "Bring More Wallet" makes come to life. If I could have just one bike and $$$ were not much consideration, it would be a R1200GS. Once you understand how the motor likes to be spun up and run in the 4K to 5K rpm range, along with excellent handling, the bike is just fun to ride, both sedate and sportingly. My dilemma is it costs more than the bike is worth to fix and resale value drops off the table for a 10 year old BMW because of these issues. If you can live with that, the RT would be an excellent commuting bike.

I also have a 2015 FJR, 53,000 miles, I bought new and have had zero issues with it. It is my traveling bike and very positive about it. It ticks a lot of boxes making it a great value and a rewarding bike to travel long distances to the twisties.
