FWA1200RT Posted May 10, 2011 Share Posted May 10, 2011 I just traded my 06 Honda ST1300 for the R1200RT. As a current owner of an 02 R1150R I was familiar with the BMW boxer twin and appreciate the handling and torque when accelerating out of the twisties. The primary reason for the trade was the 100 pound savings difference between the RT and the Honda. A couple of observations: I know the BMW's tend to be purpose built machines and sometimes skip on some of the cosmetics. That said, the rear fender almost seems unfinished. I definitely need to do something to dress that up a little. I am a Fort Wayne, Indiana resident and have to ride a few miles to find the good twisties. Generally, Southern Ohio, West Virginia, and Tennessee. Looking forward to some runs on the new RT. I look forward to learning more from the site as the BMW's continue to evolve.
