I had previously a great R1150GS Adventure, it was big, it had grunt and it was just the right bike for a tall guy like me! The most funny was that prior to that flat twin I had a good sample of japaneese four cylinders in my life!
Must be when you get older and more mature that you can undertsand what a flat twin is all about!
Anyway! Had to sell it and had to make a decision for a new one...the 1200GS sounded logical...hmm to nervous (not enough grunt at low rps) and it just felt so light and small!
Had to test the R1200RT
and guess what? Yep bought one! And since then I am crazy about it!
