Superb ride for two hours in the Cotswolds, stopping in Burford. Autmn has its merits, even if those don’t include clean, dry roads.
The R1200S is a superb motorcyle with easy, relaxing handling and plenty of pace. Sure, it’s quirky, tugging to the right from tickover, and it’s not as fast as a four, but it is a real pleasure to ride.
The F800S is quick and adequate, but not exciting or a real pleasure. Mark expressed an interest in a K1200R on our return to North Oxford Garage…
A test ride was forthcoming and back we went into the Cotswolds, me on my S (and how I love that bike). Mark’s pleasure riding it was clearly visible: I laughed out loud. The outcome was inevitable.
Yes, Mark has bought an R and this pairing may yet be seen again.
