Hello guys from Vegas. Got me my first bike in early 40s today. Actually got a grom clone no nothing about bikes but I graduated from you tube. So I made bike work replaced all electrics oil clutch cable gas throttle the whole shabbang. So that's the story I'm hooked. So today got me my real first bike.. R1200c 2001 with 2700 miles.. A beauty.. Now need to buy manual from shop or something. And make and Extra key since this key has no hole to hook up ring.. Thanks in advance from all my questions to come..

Welcome from chilly Northeast Ohio. You really made quite a jump from a grom to an R1200C. That is one sweet looking bike, and the BMW boxer engine has a character like no other. And with 2700 miles it's not even fully broken in. You are in for some fun.

A repair manual from Clymer or Haynes will work pretty well for you. I ride an R1150RT, and others on this forum also currently or used to ride Beemers.

I would have never bought a bike, but got hooked on my grom parts and tried repairing it and worked. Then came the BMW.. With Beemer pants and shirt and helmet with Bluetooth. I have 2 offers of buying it from me. But I'll buy many things but not a bike.. It's a beauty.. I named her ISOLDE Cause isolde to me.. Lol
