"Resurgence?" Don't know that they were ever forgotten by those who knew them. I know many just had to have a "new improved" 1500 in the '90s, etc, like they had to have a 1800 later, but many found wasn't so really much better after all. I bought my '85 1200A in '95 and even then, there were still a lot of 1200s on the road. Then, as the years passed, I saw fewer on the road until it got to the point, only one I'd see on a ride or at a gathering was often mine. Had a lot of interest shown by other riders, some who were younger than my 1200 even. "What year is that?" "Has it got reverse?" "How big is it?" etc.
In well maintained condition, a 1200 is still a great ride by any measure. They do like a few "R"s.
Progressive suspension and a Corbin saddle help make it even better, IMHO.
