Compare K1200LT with R1200RT
Hello everyone. I'm a long-time lurker and new member. My Honda GoldWing will be traded for either a K1200lt or an R1200RT this month. My SO approves, the dealer has made good offers for either deal, and I'm a bit confused.
I'd sure welcome your input.
I am not certain which bike to buy. My riding is genreral everyday riding, weekends riding back roads in the upper midwest two-up, and one or two 3,000 to 5,000 mile two-up trips every summer.
I don't pull a trailer. I'm in my 50's, reasonably fit, and have a 30" inseam. The Gold Wing was a bit heavy for me (1,100 lbs wet, packed and two-up) at speeds below 10 mph, but okay above that. It did feel like a pick-up truck, and I prefer the sportier handling of either BMW.
Thanks in advance for your help!
