Re: Anyone buy the RT and now wished they bought the LT or vice-versa?
I feel your pain too. I have both the RT and LT. The RT is for my one up duties due to the wife's dislike of the shortage of space. The LT came to the garage after I left my wife standing in the driveway while I went to Death Valley alone after she refused to go with me. Upon my return, she went with me to the local dealer and saw the LT on the showroom and told me to get it so she could ride with me. The rest is history. My favorite bike is the one I'm on. They're both great bikes but for really pushing it hard and dragging my knees, the RT is the weapon of choice. Of course, I dogged a Miata most the way down the mountain from Deal's Gap back to the lake. About 8 miles into the run, he gave up and waved me by. I was dragging the plastic and footpegs and the LT never felt unstable or out of place. As far as I'm concerned, as long as it's a BMW, you didn't go wrong.
