The Best of the Best 2003: Cruisers - BMW R1200C

Fluto Shinzawa

Examine the odometer of a typical BMW R1200C, and you will likely find numbers reminiscent of those in an arcade game. Some motorcycles are suited for short and intense blasts at the track; others are at their best on lazy weekend cruises. The $14,590 BMW, however, is a workhorse capable of making cross-country jaunts and motoring for an entire day.
 
The BMW’s Telelever suspension absorbs bumps like a sponge, and the Montana version of the R1200C has a raised windshield and heated handgrips that make the ride even more comfortable. The heart of the motorcycle is its 1,170cc engine, which can run seemingly forever without a hitch.
