New to this forum
Well I am new to this forum but not to BMW. I have had 3 BMW'S in the past 5 years. A 99 1100 RT, A 2006 1200 RT and a 2001 LT. Then I left this spring and went to a Yamaha FJR 1300. Well made bike but the handling was not quite as good as the BMW's and I could never get comfortable on the thing.
I live here in Texas and the FJR cooks you in anything over 85 degrees, the engine gets extremely hot and blows it all on ones legs.
My new ride is an 08 1200 GT with 8,200 miles on the odo. I managed what seems to be a good price $10,700. My hope is that this bike gives me as much pleasure as my past Beemers.
