2015 RT

I took a couple hour demo on the new RT but after getting back on my K13GT sorry but I like it better. I guess I'll keep it , I'll just have to break the 1 bike rule and get something different for us . Goldwing , Indian Chieftian, Moto Guzzi California Touring ?

Re: 2015 RT

Or, you could just get all of those potential bikes wrapped up in one, and go for a K1600.

As quick an fun as your GT, with more luggage, way more torque, and more amenities than all of those other bikes ('Wing included).

Just a thought . . .

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: 2015 RT

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the ride.

The K1600 is a bit bigger and heavier than the K13GT, but I found the lower center of gravity and massive torque makes it easier to ride, even in the tight, twisty stuff. And you really can't beat all those extra gadgets . . .

And it's still not as big or heavy as the LT.

Re: 2015 RT

You didn't like the 2015 RT? I have a 2009 K1300GT and love the power, but I'm leaning to replacing it.
