I was amazed at how little engine heat you can feel, since the radiators ship the heat out to the sides instead of across your legs.
I realize that you may have a sentimental attachment to a 1200, but I would go for comfort and performance. It is nice to have all that torque, most corners you can roll in 4th gear, 3rd works to almost a stop. 1800 is lighter than my 1100 was, even with the tourpack very nimble.

Happy riding any way you go.
I am 15 miles from Morvin. There is a chance I know her family. I grew up in Sweet Water, and except for 4 years in the service with 23 months and 17 days in Nam have been close around here most of my life.

O.K. I also look for a 1500. Y'all sure are a bunch to convince someone to start shopping again. And there are a lot more 1500 around this area for sale, and the price isn't to bad either.
