Back from RT...

Got the bug for an RT and bought one last October, 2006 with 1,200 miles on it. Rode it for about 10,000 miles and neglected my 02 KRS. Put it up for sale on CL and it sold very fast so... Am back on my RS and love it!

Hope you all don't mind if I hang around for a while.

welcome back

So you came back to the dark side. I never rode a RT though I was looking for one as well as a GT. I would have liked to have ridden a RT to know what it was all about, but the opportunity never presented itself and found a 04 1200 GT and damn I am happy with my ride. Welcome home.

Yep, but not as smooth as a K1200...

Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...

My first beemer was a '99RT.......great bike......the boxers are very user friendly when it comes to the required maintenance. I still own and ride my second GS. It's a workhorse and much appreciated bike.

The contrast with the inline 4 K-bikes is significant.....and not always in the K's favor.....

I don't ride my K around town for the most part. It's a heavy pig at low speeds. When it's time to pile on some miles without stoplights and low speed turns, that's where the K excels....and carving canyons is a joy.

OTOH, working on the K is significantly more of a challenge....but worth it if you ride the bike when it should be ridden.
