    Annie has put 3300 miles on her F650GS in the past 12 days, including a 4 day break in Moab. No complaints about it being buzzy from her.

    My knees are aching just looking at it!

    14 R1200GSA, 93 R100R. No car is as fun to drive as any motorcycle is to ride.

    Yah, mine too

    But, I do have to say that along with my RT, I picked up a F650GS and it's a hoot to ride. I have taken it on some 400 mile days and I can only think that engine in a F800 chassis with it's USD forks and belt drive would make a good platform.

    The R1200RT (as good as it is) is still a 100 lbs plus heavier than my F650 is (or my old R100T was) and for the type of roads I tour on, and at my age, that 100 lbs shows in my bike handling at the end of a hard day.

    The GT looks to be close but no cigar. There will be a huge aftermarket thriving on selling what it takes to convert it to an "RT".
