About to join the club....

Hi All!

I just put a deposit on a 2016 R1200RT (Blue) a Max BMW in Troy, NY. I've been looking and reading for about a year now, and after a test drive this past weekend I was sold. In my opinion I got a good deal on the bike, although I really didn't need the keyless or gear-shift-pro options.

Hopefully I'll be picking up the bike on Friday in Sunny 80 degree weather for my first ride!

Welcome to the club, great bike! You will love the shift assist pro after using it for a while.

Thanks guys. I got to take it for an hour long test drive, and then the salesman had me take out an r1200r so I could feel the difference between the two. I did like how smooth the r1200r was.... But one of my main goals was to get a long distance touring bike so I can more easily ride with the folks when they retire on their mototrike-ed goldwing next year. I'm coming from a Suzuki Boulevard C50T so it's quite a step up. I learned that bike was too small for me when I did a trip to Florida and back a couple years ago, West Virginia at 75 mph in the rain on a small bike was a bit rattling. Lol
