Greetings from the OC in SoCal. I have been researching bikes by renting, riding and perusing the message boards. Made my decision and purchased a beautiful low mileage (18k) 2008 RT yesterday. Flew up to Sacramento in NorCal and bought from a retired motor officer who moved to a GS, and got a nice 425 mile ride home.

Thanks for all the advice I lurked from many of you to allow me (what I hope was) an informed decision on what to look for and buy. I am 55, recently retired and have never missed a season of off road or been without a bike since 1968. Other than a 2 year attempt to love a KTM 690, they have all been dirt though. I have a lot to learn :) guess I should start with a search on how to upload a photo.

CW,

I'm a retired motocross/enduro guy who finally bit the bullet 6 years ago and got my street license. And finally, last year, signed on with BMW and bot an 11 RT, my first street bike. Such an amazing machine. Good luck and happy trails.
