Hey. Walt here, from Santa Maria. Traded the LT last October for the RT. I lost a buncha weight (90 lbs now, Raffy!) and was beginning to resent the effort required to lift the Light Truck up on the center stand. I'm really liking the RT with its 200+ lbs lighter weight, more HP, quicker response, ESA, trip computer. Here it is in Death Valley last November:

My '05 RT

Here's my Rt just back from VT rally. Had a great time. Rode to the top of Mt Mansfield & Mt Washington NH. Rode most of the day Sat in the rain. Slept in tent Sat night in the rain, and packed to leave sun morn in the rain. She's 13 mths old and 23k miles. Best bike I've ever owned.

OK, you win the battle of "Beast of Burden" for this month. The tank bag is in the house getting "filled" with something I'm sure.

Can I assume that the antenna was a local installation?

Love the red. I'm thinking about painting my GT red...to match SO's new helmet and the red accent in her Rev'It! jacket....

Too bad your bike only has 2 cylinders....

Thanks for the welcome.

My wife and I are both IBA members, she as a passenger. We now have two Harleys, Ultra and Softail. We moved to the Harleys from a Goldwing. We are now about to make our next move to the RT and appreciate the forums help in getting to this decision. Any advice is appreciated. George

Welcome George! Congrats on moving to the BMW. My pal is the Chief Chassis Engineer for HD and he recommended I stay with BMW. He knows how I ride. They do lots of comparisons and he knows I need BIG BRAKES, ABS, and a motor that can manage abuse! The HD life style is great fun and maybe when I hit 80 I'll slow down and buy a HD. 'till then, I'm sticking with the GT or whatever they come up with next. My brother in law has an RT and he loves it. He has maybe 20,000 miles on it. I prefer the GT. You will love this site. Lots of great people.

Hi all another newbie to this great site. I don't have the newer 1200 but have a 90 K100RT which I got back in 2003. It had 182,000klms then but has just clicked over the 245,000 mark and still going strong. It does have a few additional extras which basically are the same as the LT and I have added a few also since I purchased it. Some gold chromework, stereo, driving lights, autocom, GPS, UHF/AM CB, heated grips, Towbar.
Anyway here is my pride and joy


I even built a trailer to make a matching outfit for when we go to the Ulysses AGM's held across the country here annually.


and finally. This one of a spectacularly presented R1200RT that was at the Ulysses AGM in Tasmania last year. I think the pic says it all.

Hey Ross, nice set up with your BMW. What seat do you have on it? Is that the seat that you have sat on for all those Ks? Thanks, George

Past owner R1200RT

I had an early build 05 R1200RT and had a couple of issues. The front brake rotors warped twice and the windscreen would bounce around at all speeds. I was annoyed with BMW customer service and sold the bike.

I currently have a Honda St1300 with no problems 19,000 Mi. I due miss the Beemer though, because of great handling, heated seat and grips and cruise control. I will be purchasing another Beemer in the future, but would like to know if these issues were recalled and fixed on the later model Rt's?

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.

This colour is great! I'm on my way to order one today, delivered as snow eases in late march.

Just checked my new bike at the dealers. Comes with iPod wiring, chrome exhaust and all the other Australian SE features. Hope to pick it up Saturday morning and start the break in period. Have a long tour planned, I just need to buy a mount for the GPS and I'm set.

How is that new R1200RT going?

What GPS do you have?

I purchased the Nuvi 760, not a bike GPS but the best going for the RT as far as I'm concerned. The Nuvi has MP3 Player, Fm transmitter, track logs, programmable routes using Mapsource and so on.
The bike I like a lot, find I get a sore Arse, but hope that will wear in. I have 2000 klms so far, off for first service on Tuesday. I am then doing a 4,000 k ride down to Tassie and back.
What I really like is the sports bike handling ! Wow this bike just handles so well for the weight and size, I don't think I'm any slower than on my Buell in the corners, and I'm not used to the bike yet. It is slower out of corners dues to the weight, and is not as agile , but this does not take much away from the ride. I 'm pleased I didn't go with my first choice the K1200GT, as I just don't think the handling side of the ride would have ben as enjoyable as the RT is.

I checked out the Nuvi 760 after reading your comment about it an earlier post and I like it a lot. If I decide to buy it I plan to slide it under the clear map cover of the tank bag and run a lead through the bottom of the tank bag for power. Hopefully a good enough position for viewing, and if I park and go for a walk I picture taking the tank bag off and lock it in one of the cases or carry it with me anyway.
Your position on the windshield looks good, but what do you do when it starts to pour? I know it seldom rains in Wollongong, but still?
