2003 BMW R 1200 CL from Canada
Blown fuse for the running lights.
I've been riding a bike with a sidecar for over 28 years. Needed to get a little used to a 2 wheeler, but I just love the ride.
Well balanced and very comfortable. It's not a loud bike, but it has the power to ride the speed limit in any terrain with any bike out there.
It was a good fit for me and it made me fall in love with riding again. I may be 52, but it puts a smile on my face and makes me feel 22 every time I go out on the road (freedom).
Be safe all - see you on the road EH...
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm glad to see a positive review. I just bought one with 22000 miles. It's my first cruiser, and I bought it simply because it's comfortable and fit my budget.
"Underpowered" seems to be the common theme of all reviews. While it's not a racing machine, there's adequate power for my riding style.
I hope to be able to keep in touch with other R1200 "Cruise Liner" riders.

I acquired a 2004 BMW R 1200 CL in September of 2020. Having now rode the motorcycle for exactly one year and put 8000 miles on it, I can honestly say it has been a great motorcycle. Very comfortable and reliable. My wife doesn't hesitate to get on the back of this motorcycle and ride long distance with me. That is an added plus.
As far as being underpowered, I have never had an issue keeping up with other motorcycles in the group. Also people need to realize this is a big touring bike; it's not designed to be fast. It's got torque where you need it and will move 2 people along with luggage without any issues whatsoever. At times you feel like this thing could tow a trailer.
