A Brick is embedded in there though—like in this one from Pat Dennis. It's just that the K1200 brick was covered in pancake makeup, rouge and a wig by the time it went to market.  :laughing4-giggles:

Any BMW with a longitudinal inline engine is a brick.  The early K1200's were. The later K1200's with transverse inline engines are not.

It seems like a lot of bike for $3500 ,  after the 1100s both R and K got too complicated to me.  Still, only
20k on the clock. Yea, they are heavy,but  it is almost 1200cc.
