My name is Craig and I live in the Atlanta area. I go by RRainman on all my motorcycle forums. I have been riding for over 20 years and next Saturday I am picking up my first Beemer. I am buying a low miles 2006 R1200RT from a friend of mine. I wasin the market for another sport-tourer and told my buddy that I was about to pull the trigger on an ST1300 (I've had an ST1100 before). He asked if I wanted his bike as he was going to ride so little that he'll rent one when he wants.

I jumped on the opportunity to get his R1200RT as it is a beautiful bike, and I love all of the amentities, and the power/handling is improved over the R1150RT. Handling is very important to me. I also have a 2004 Yamaha R1 and a 2003 Honda RC51 that is track-only. I love the twisties and ride pretty aggressively. This R1200RT is for my long trips, but will still allow mw to have fun when I get to some twisty roads. I am eager to feel how that paralever suspension works.

Well, I am looking forward to meeting you folks in the future.

Welcome.
How great is it that you can wake up any day and walk to your garage and think 'hmm, how do I feel today. Is it an R1, RC, or RT day'? Who wouldn't envy that?

I think you're up to RRRainman now.

How true! I've always heard that we don't have to look far to see how grateful we should be. I just didn't realize that it was as far as my garage.

Truth be told, simply having a garage makes me more grateful than most.

Tell me about it. I live in NYC and don't have a garage. I barely have an apartment ...for $2000 a month in rent! Can you define insanity?

Centeral Georgis is calling!

If you're ever in the Sandersville, GA area please give me a heads up and a call. I'll show you some nice back roads, and it would be good to find a fellow rider.

Insanity: Continuing to do what you've always done - expecting different results.
