CR99, I've had an 1150 R and several 12GS's. Get the GS/don't even think about the R just because it costs less. There is a reason it does. Look for an '07 and you will find one for 10k or less. Ignore guys asking 12/13k for them, that's just silly. I've owned every year from mid '04 when they came out to late '09. If you have any questions, PM me and I'll be happy to help.
ride till you can't.
