Vintage Rider is a bit of a Luddite. The R1200 is easily as reliable as the R1100/1150.
Anyone interested in the difficulty level of R1200 maintenance should look here for a tutorial: http://www.jimvonbaden.com/R1200_Final_Drive.html http://www.jimvonbaden.com/R1200_24K.html
There are easily as many R1200 bikes, as mile to mile basis, as there are R1100/1150 bikes building big miles with nothing but regular maintenance.
My R1200GS has 120K miles on it, and runs like new.
