Re: Bought an R11RT. Did I buy the wrong bike?
Thanks for all your comments. Yes, Ted, I did try an R12RT, and thanks for taking the time to show it to me.
When I bought the R1150RT I traded in my FJR1300 for it. I loved the speed and smoothness of that bike, but wasn't comfortable on it, even after risers and a Corbin seat. When I tried the R1150RT I was amazed at how well it cornered and how comfortable it was compared to the FJR. I liked the Rick Meyer seat of course!!!! This bike looks good and corners great. It does have enough power, but could use more (after 145 hp on an FJR, I just have to deal with it.).
I didn't see many R1150RT posts on this forum and was just curious about other riders' opinions. I understand that what one wants and likes is subjective, but it is interesting to get other persepectives. I wasn't ready to put out that much money, especially since I still have my cruiser. When I am weaned off that I can see myself going to the R12RT. So, Ted, I'll probably be back!!!!!!
