99 RT vs 02 LT
Looking at two bikes, same dealer.
99 K1100RT: Dark Graphite Metallic, 54,768 Miles, Two Owner, Heated Grips, BMW Top & Side Cases, Hazard Lights, ABS, Comfort Seat, New Metzeler Tires, Just Serviced, Rebuilt Transmission, $5,390
02 K1200LT: 42,297 Miles, One Owner, Sold & Serviced at Gina's BMW, BMW Navigator, Cruise Control, Heated Seats, Heated Grips, BMW Communication System $8,560
Thought I really wanted an LT, now not so sure. The RT looks nice too, and would obviously be a lower cost to start with. How concerned should I be over the rebuilt transmission? A few less gizmos on the RT and I'm guessing the LT is a little more passenger friendly.
Dealer is highly regarded.
I'm going to go and ride both on Saturday. But, would appreciate the input from a group more knowledgeable than I.
