Reviews & Awards for Motorcycle R1200RT

The R 1200 RT was selected as the "Best Touring Bike" by two major American monthly motorcycle magazines.
In September 2006 the R 1200 RT was named the United Kingdom's "number one motorcycle" by readers of Ride magazine in its annual "Rider Power" survey. In October 2006, the R 1200 RT was cited as the "Best Tourer" for the second year in a row by Motorcycle News in England. The citation read:
The R 1200 RT was awarded the accolade after Ride readers were invited to nominate and assess their favorite bike according to a number of rating categories. These included build quality, engine performance, rider comfort, reliability, handling and overall impressions. The RT which also won the 2005 MCN Best Tourer Award in its first year of production received an overall score of 85.14 per cent, beating 149 other motorcycles to the number one spot.
Over 10,000 readers voted in the survey and each was asked to justify their choice of bike. "Overall this is a brilliant bike, I haven't had so much fun in ages" said one RT owner. A second writes: "I've had no faults, build quality or reliability issues. I'm extremely impressed with my BMW." Other claims that his RT is "the best bike I've ever owned.

Why not just become a supporting vendor and quit placing posts that are obviously ads?
