i also had the following - r1150r, r1200gs, r1200rt, k200gt/2006, r1200gsadv, k1200gt2008 (present). my impressions about the rt were mixed. best point - good handling at low speed, best of all. bad things - too front heavy, due to oversized front which provides best protection of all again. front wheel tends to slip laterally on slippery - wet, leaves- surfaces. i think is a better bike for overall use than the k. engine burns some oil.
the k- best for freeway, particularly bad inside crowded cities with stop-and-go traffic. cannot be handles at low rpm, engine stalls. best possible performance on open road, best speed touring bike ever. addictive power. engine does not burn oil. also does not require valve adjustments every 6k miles.
i think i would like an rt with k engine.
