Moving on from my RT


Recommended Posts


Bought new in April of '02 and many experiences - and countless rallies and Torrey's - it was time to move on. My RT served as my reentry bike after a 17 year absence from riding and never failed to impress me and at times, piss me off. Never, ever be a BMW  beta buyer/tester! At some point in the next year she'll be replaced with a GSA of unknown vintage other than to say it'll be new or very new. My eye is on the 1300 but heading my own admonishment about being a beta buyer I may stay on the sidelines and watch others deal with the proclivities of a new bike.


Hijacking my own thread, I'm now wonder what that value of a sun-faded Big Mak tank bag with an enhanced (thanks, Fernando) metal base plate and all hardware might be.....

Well, as they say... things come and things go... so, welcome to the parade. I did those bike changing things, and I guess I was a few years ahead of you- based on my age. I was ready to make a change two years ago when I up and decided to make it a larger change. Put the last bike on a trailer and took her to the dealership in Denver and put it on sale. Two weeks later I had the check in-hand. Never looked back... but I kinda, sorta, wish I could ride...on those perfect days....

I felt I got a Big Mak deal a couple years ago.  One mount, large and small bags, both with SAE power ports, one rain cover. Both slightly faded, The elastic band covering  the zippers is inelastic/over-stretched, won't lie flat, but not a problem.
