    Don't hate it, get it!!!!!

    Don't even think of hating it, and trust me, you won't miss either the RT or the GL1800. It's better than either. And I'm saying that after having only ridden 184 miles with a 43.8 mpg average. ...

    I have a GS and my wife has an R1200R, with the factory lowering option. Even though her bike sits a bit low for me (6'), I have yet to scrape a peg on it, and I'm an aggressive rider. The R is an...

    Ride the way you've always ridden. Don't try to overthink the brake setup on the RT, or you'll just find yourself in trouble. If you're an accomplished, experienced rider with a few classes and/or...

    Go with the Yuasa or Deka. They both fit without any modification whatsoever. Either is under $100, should be around $80. Got mine at a local, independent parts shop. They're sealed batteries. ...

    I think you'd be happy with an R

    Fastdogs, after re-reading your post, I would say you would probably be quite happy with the R. As you can see from my sig, I have an RT and my wife has an R, which I ride every once in a while. ...

    Wow, that one's about $60 more than the Migsel and from the description takes 1 hour or more to install, the Migsel installs in about 10 minutes using existing bolt holes!
