    Well, I guess only time will tell if it's the bike for me or not. It usually takes me at least a season with a bike to tell if I love it or hate it. Test rides are nice for an initial impression,...

    Don't forget that the side stand is different and if you have a center stand, that it also might need to be cut down.

    I have about 30 K experience with both (09 RT, 11RT) and the biggest difference to me is the low end. The 09 was at its happiest from 3000 rpm on up and the 11 will pull all the way from 2500 rpm. ...

    The 09's had a faulty charcoal canister connection that was fixed on recall. Has this bike had that mod? If not, it sounds exactly like the symptoms I had before the tubings was re-routed and fixed.

    In case anyone is interested, I just put a set of 1200GS mirrors I had kicking around on my 2012 F650GS. No problems doing so, the thread size into the base is the same so no need to loosen the...

    I can't speak for the 2010, but 2011 GS mirrors fit my 2011 bars and I believe the R1200R mirrors will also fit. They are a bolt on.

    For a $1000 less and only 8000 more miles, I'd go with the 06. The 46 L trunk and tankbag are big bucks - not to mention the tires. 8000 miles is nothing on an RT

    Well, it comes home today. Now all I have to find is a small "day" type tank bag that will fit it and not damage the paint on the tank. I wonder if the factory ones are still available?
