New owner from Kennesaw GA

I just traded out my 2006 Suzuki C50 for a 2000 1100RT. I'm loving the bike and glad to have something I'm not afraid to get on the super slab with.

Over the last few years I've spent my time on volusiariders.com where I'm a mod, but I figured I'd check in over here on the BMW sister site with the new bike.

Thought I'd always be more of a cruiser guy and never really thought about BMW, but when the opportunity arose to pick one up with only 16k miles on it I jumped and I'm glad I did. :wayhappy:

Welcome to the forum Whiskey. I had an R1100RT before my LT. I wish I still had it.

Welcome to the new-to-you bike and the forum. It looks like a nice ride. I was looking at these models myself. Hope you get a lot of miles and fun out of your RT. What are your thoughts when you compare the RT with the c50?

The RT is in a completely different league than the C50. Better power, better handling, better most everything. The riding position was a bit weird at first but only took about two rides to get used to. It doesn't feel quite as comfortable as my C50 yet, but that's mostly because I had spent a lot of time and money getting everything set up for me on it. I'll get the RT set up right for me soon.
