I think the R12C is likely one of the most misunderstood yet most fun and most dependable bikes BMW ever made. As you can see in my signature lines, I still have one along with a couple of other rides in the stable. My '00 blue one now has 104K+ (completely trouble free) miles on it. And I picked up that '00 RT in October two years ago with only 12K on the odo and only paid a bit over 1/3 new price for it.
Right now though, I'm lusting over the new Trophy. Can't wait to see and drive one.
BTW; how do you like the 1600? I sat on one in July 2011 and decided it was way too tall for my 27" inseam. That's one of the reasons I am so jazzed up about the Trophy with it's 30.3" seat height.
