    Yup, it's the 1200.
    Looking forward to doing some trips down the coast when my "free" hard bags are delivered to the dealership.
    It is one helluva big massive bike, at least compared to what I'm used to.
    Sump guard notwithstanding, I don't really plan to do much off-roading, if any. Maybe some logging roads or something (key word
    being 'road'). I was looking for something comfy that could tour, and had some capability for crappy surfaces. If I was
    intending to do a lot of off-roading, I'd have gotten the 800 Tiger.

    Still figuring out the electronic gizmos....
    Love that super-torquey engine, and the comfort. And I love the look of the single-sided swing arm with shaft drive.

    It was a bit more than I planned on spending, but I figured at my age, why wait to get the bike I REALLY want? I

    I also wanted something a bit 'different', ie, not an inline four (not that there's anything wrong with inline fours).
