Howdy from Dallas

Just bought a new-to-me 2011 R1200RT last week. Big difference from what I had been used to riding but I like it. Most importantly, my wife loves it and is very comfortable on it so far (so far only short getting acquainted rides). I was used to riding Yamaha VStars but this caught our eyes when we were looking around. Really liking it so far! Still getting used to the higher seating position and toes on the ground at full stop.

I live east of Dallas out in Josephine, TX which is between Royse City and Caddo Mills. I work in Addison.

Looking forward to many miles of riding again!
