R series bikes?

Hey guys, quick question;

Anybody here have personal experience/opinions on the R series BMW bikes?

I'm looking at possibly picking up a 2007 R1200s with 16k miles on it. I know these air cooled boxer motors are BMW's bread n butter motor, I've seen plenty of CL with well over 50k miles


Basically here's my situation:

I've had 3 honda 600cc sportbikes (F2, F4i, 600rr), and I currently have a Victory V92c that I inherited.

I was looking at picking up a Ducati 1098 this fall, but after looking at the insurance costs I quickly decided that'll have to wait a couple years


I'm looking for a relatively comfortable, yet sporty bike that I can ride daily for 10-30 miles a pop, reliable, and most important I want it to have character.


This, IMO, is one of the coolest looking bikes i've ever seen.. its goofy, yet kinda mean, and almost subtle at the same time....
