Hello! Joined up today to learn more about Beemers and to help decide whether to buy one or not. I am without a ride at the moment but have over 50k of overall road experience (which I realize is mere pittance compared to many of you). These miles were compiled over 6 bikes and 33 years (almost 31k of that on my last two two rides). Past garage consisted of:
While living in NYC
1982 Honda Nighthawk - 12,000 miles ridden in and around Manhattan.
1984 and 1985 Honda 500 Interceptor - crashed one sold the other.
1984 Yamaha Seca 750 full fairing and hard bags.
2003 Kawasaki Bandit 1200 - 11,000 miles ridden around CT, VT, and NH
2005 Yamaha FRJ1300 - ridden about 20,000 miles over a span of four years in the same area and some in Ohio.
So, now I'm here, looking into getting back into riding and have always liked the RTs. I'm waffling between getting another FJR, a Gold Wing (gasp!), or a new or used RT.
