K1600GT vs R1200RT
I'm currently on my second R1100RT (1997) which I love (custom exhaust & seat) but I promised my son if he comes home from Afghanistan in one piece it's his (he's an experienced rider). So that happens very soon.
I've always loved sport touring since I do both, but over the lifetime of my next bike I might move into more of the 'touring' aspect than 'sport' although both will be important. I travel a lot for work and I'm not sure how long it will be until I can get to a dealership and test ride both, but I'm interested to know if anyone has compared the two head to head and thoughts, etc on the differences between the R1200RT (2011 or 2012) vs the K1600GT (not the GTL).
