Of course, then BMW had us ride the R1200S over fast, swooping mountain roads and highways to ... a racetrack. The Killarney Motor Racing Circuit, to be precise, a 2-mile, nine-turn, medium-fast track in the Western Cape, where we gathered the majority of our riding impressions. And the majority of those were extremely positive. You should know, however, the bikes had options galore: Ohlins shocks for the Telelever front and Paralever rear ends, a 6.0-inch-wide rear wheel with 190mm tire, plus ABS and heated grips. Along with the extra-cost two-tone paint, our bike had $2465 in options, raising the $14,700 base price to $17,165.
