BMW R1200C

I love strange and unusual motorcycles. I think this BMW qualifies. These photos are of two R1200C Montana's. BMW built the R1200C's from 1997 to 2000. They built about 40,000 R1200C motorcycles.
BMW called the front suspension Telelever, which is also called Saxon-Motodd.
The bike has some interesting parts like a tubular single sided swing arm that houses the drive shaft. Brembo brakes with anti-lock. All the good stuff wrapped in a very unusual motorcycle designed as a "cruiser" style with forward foot pegs and high handlebars.
I look at this bike over and over and still cant figure it.
