JiminPA Posted April 3, 2007 Share Posted April 3, 2007 I am looking to purchase my first BMW. Proabably going to be an RT. I have ridden and really like the R1200RT but cost is an issue. I have seen a lot of very reasonable R1150RTs that are more in my price range. The question I have is about setting the suspension. On the 1200RT I rode with the ESA set to the comfort setting most of the time as I have some lower back problems and like the cushy ride, particularly on the concrete interstate higways. Those little seams just wear on my back. I haven't had a chance to ride an 1150RT and adjust the suspension. Is it possible to adjust the suspension to get a ride similar to the 1200RT with the ESA on the comfort setting with the 1150RT shocks. I don't want to buy one to find out and its hard to go and start messing with someone elses Bike even if I am considering purchasing it. I know softening the suspension will give up some handling, but its either that or my riding days are done. Link to comment
