New 1250rt

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a new mars red 1250rt. My previous bike was a 2012 1200rt that I bought last year as a retirement present to myself. Before that I rode Honda 450 and 550 more than 35 years ago. I liked riding the 2012 1200rt a lot but decided life is too short and I wanted new. I pulled the trigger on the new 1250 with no regrets. Iíll post better pictures later.

Looks great, best of luck with the new toy.

Congrats on the new 1250! I hope to visit your corner of the world in August to visit my son and ride the PCH again.
