New member shopping for tourer
I have not ridden for years and I need to get back into it. I'm looking at different touring bikes and the R1200RT is at the top.
Background, I work second shift and my 50 minute commute is through farm land and state game lands. Note - deer, lots of deer.
Since I am on second shift my drive home is always at night and I want your opinions on the light coverage of the 1200RT. My 2010 Toyota truck has great high beams and I have no problems seeing over 100 yards.
How are the lights on this tourer and can they be upgraded???
I'm probably looking at a Spring 2013 purchase.
i live on the north fork of long island with lotsa deer
i don't ride at night unless i have to.
if i have to, i try to get behind another vehicle and let it run interference.
motorcycles , deer and night time flat don't mix.
improved lighting won't help much.
they run into bikes as often as bikes run into them.
thanks foir your service, ticket
got a lot of time in tomcats but i'd have to say the f-4b was more likeable.
reason being...no friggin' software.
still get a little acro in gliders,
welcome aboard, mate.
