    Hi welcome to the forum, good choice of bike and should be minth with that mileage. Tire pressures may start a debate. I run mine at 36psi in the front and 42psi in the rear. The handbook for the 1200 I have says 36 psi for both the front and back but i think most owners go with something nearer to 36/42, certianly works for me.
