I thought I would have some fun and share the thrill of my new RT and the adventures of Mr Bill. I got my new R1200RT in March and have ridden it every day since. Mr Bill is our riding companion and likes to blog along the way. Please feel free to follow along at MrBillsBMW.com It should be a fun summer. I hope we can make some fun weekend trips. :dance:
Keep the rubber side down and don't drive faster than your guardian angel.
I had a Mr. Bill-like companion for quite a while (see my avatar), he rode on top of my front brake lever. Great guy, he always got a smile from small children in cars waiting at stoplights. Unfortunately, as I was riding along in Oakland CA a few months ago his head, arms, torso and one leg just disappeared. All that was left was the other leg. Not sure whether he fell off or whether he was the random victim of a drive-by shooting but I haven't ridden that road since.
Gotta get me a new companion. I was thinking of digging out one of those damn Beanie Babies that my kids collected 15-20 years ago but I'm not sure how it would stand the all-weather riding I do.
