RT vs. GT..................GT vs. RT...............????
I was in this very quandary several months ago. I live in a rural town in Nevada and on one of my many rides back to California on my 2006 R1200RT to visit family I test rode a new GT. A friend of mine owns a BMW dealer in the Southern California area and he let me take one of the GT's for a whole day. No doubt the motor is to die for (probably a bad use of words regarding motorcycles). After I returned the bike mid afternoon and getting back on the RT it felt like old home week. Decision made, I rode my RT back home, all was well,,,,,,, wrong, I could not get that motor out of my mind. In less than two weeks I was back on my RT heading to California, another half day on the GT, and I traded for 2008 GT and couldn't be happier.
Good luck with your decision, isn't this fun.................Bob
